How to simulate monitor glow to actor's face

Postby thedrkwhyt on 06/10/2017, 1:37 am

I have a shot where an actor is pretending to play computer games, the monitor has green paper covered on it so as to replace it afterwards in post with video game footage. I can do that no problem, but how do I make it appear that the glow from the screen is affecting his face? Any tips you guys would like to share? Thank you!

Just mask an adjustment layer onto the actor's face and play with the brightness, tint, and so on.
