How to create awesome lens flares like these?

Hi all,

Was wondering if anyone could shed some tips/tricks on how to create awesome lens flares like the ones in these videos?

1. http://www.numbrobot.com/quicktimes/JEREMIH_BREAK_UP.mov

From about the 2:50 mark, during the sequence with the women dancing in front of the cars.

2. http://www.numbrobot.com/quicktimes/SKINNY_JEANS_COMPARE.mov

Pretty much off every light source in the video.

So, all you pros, whats the secret to that effect?

For the second video you can purchase Red Giants Looks. One of their presets will do the same type of flaring.

Oh, so these are digital effects and not in-camera?

Check out this article: http://www.ascmag.com/magazine_dynamic/June2009/StarTrek/page1.php

Here's a quote from page two: "Much of the lighting built into the interior was designed to cause lens flares, which serve as a visual motif throughout the picture. “The Enterprise has lights set in frame that basically point down the lens of the camera in every direction,” says Mindel. “Wherever you look, you get a flare."

I added the underline.
