Ok, youngify™ I get, but what is 'vaseline lens'?
A slightly blurry filter that makes age-lines vanish. You can do it on the cheap by carefully smearing vaseline on the lense.
Ah! The Doris Day effect.
I want that and a wind machine - all the time.
Moonlighting used to use it poorly, they'd have a conversation between Dave and Maddie and you'd see Bruce Willis crystal clear and then they show Cybill Shepard blurry, it was always very obvious and frustrating.
That's what that was? I thought it was my contacts!
This was egregiously noticeable when I started watching Boston Legal in HD as well.
Candace Bergen's closeups were rather blurry while everyone else's were clear.
At least with HD you can see how it could creep in, I'm talking 1980's in SD on CRTs and it was obvious and poorly handled.
It's too bad because if they handle it smartly it's not obvious and there are plenty of instances where it's done lightly for an actress and not her male co-stars, but it doesn't stick out, I am convinced that in most cases it's folks that are old school film-based.
I said to my wife, "So a ponytail and glasses makes you look younger, eh?" and she said, "The glasses hide her wrinkles." I thought that was a pretty good point.
In that case, it's called "soft focus" and it's been a pretty common technique when filming older actresses for a long, long time. In fact, last week's episode of OUAT used it pretty blatantly in the scenes when Regina was working with Rumplestiltskin and was supposed to be the young girl that had just lost her fiance. It was especially bad in the scene where the Mad Hatter showed up.
