True-Streak® filters emulate optical light reflections in an anamorphic style and were even used during this year’s "Big Game" Halftime Show in Tampa, Florida to create dramatic lighting effects. They come in a variety of colors (red, orange, green, yellow, purple, pink, gold, clear) and color combinations (rainbow, confetti). As of now, Schneider-Kreuznach also provides the popular filters in indigo.
Alan Stockdale, owner of Foundlight Productions, loves using these filters in his projects, “You can have the flare come and go behind some if there’s light back there. You can tell it’s not a software plug-in and it hasn’t just been thrown on in post. It’s much closer in that sense to a true anamorphic lens. The effect is done in camera and captured live on the lens, and that’s the beauty of it for me. You don’t have to spend ages tracking and masking in and out flares if you want them to disappear, it’s just done and it’s there, and it looks natural because it is natural.”
Schneider-Kreuznach says thank you and is very pleased to receive the Award again!
