If you haven’t already, take a look at some actual color cards to see how they’re set up. One way you may be able to ‘make your own’ is to get some Pantone color swatches and try to match them up with the colors in the color card. Trying to mix your own colors according to the specifically calibrated industry standard color cards might get expensive and may be tough to duplicate.
Another way to change your color calibration is using ‘Warm Cards’ to calibrate your white balance with. Warm Cards will add various amounts of ‘video red’ to your scene thus warming up your videos. However, if your camera doesn’t have manual white balancing capability or if you’re using auto white balancing, none of this stuff is going to work for you. Lastly, auto primer is as close to an 18% gray as you can get without having to make it yourself.
