Inverse Color with Correction Gels

In this video, Robert Hall goes over using a single CTO gel to inverse the color of multiple lights that aren't gelled. When he adds a Color temperature orange gel to the key light, it of course becomes very warm in color.

But, by reducing the kelvin temperature from 5500 down to tungsten Kelvin to balance with the key light, it accurately represents the skin color again. As a result, the two lights in the background take on a very blue color because the camera's white balance is set for 3200, making the 5500k lights with no gel blue.
