From American Cinematographer, Flesh for Fantasy by Eric Rudolph (May 1999)
"There is an artificiality to the uncorrected blue of HMIs on night exteriors. However, I go in phases. Sometimes I'll use only HMIs on night shots, but I'll never use them straight; I always half-correct so they don't look quite so blue. For this big night scene in eXistenZ, I decided to go for a different look by using only tungsten light."
