Could you recommend color cast in Final Cut's 3 Way color or in Apple Color to give a scene distinctly moon night look.
What is a full moon night?
low saturation, yellow cast? ...

I would lean more towards a blue cast, especially in the blacks and mids.

I have a system, it has stuff in it, and stuff hooked to it. I have a camera, it can record stuff. I read the manuals, and know how to use this stuff and lots of other stuff too.
You should be suitably impressed...

From a BBC show shot on a dull day: the same setup, with the second corrected for night:

Day for night is trickier than it sounds because the background/sky has to be darker than the foreground. It's hard to say what's going to be convincing without seeing the footage you're trying to change but you'll probably have to put the shot on two layers and key or matte the upper one to separate the sky/background from the foreground and put a darker grade on that. Blue cast & crushed shadows.
