I just recently saw PTA's film "Punch Drunk Love", shot by Robert Elswit. Robert uses, quite often throughout the film, intentionally created blue, red, green and other colors of lens flares across different parts of the frame. I loved this effect, especially because lens flares so often mean the scrapping of a shot. How would one go about creating these flares, especially in different colors?

Well, you could either do it with a gelled light out of frame pointed at the camera, sometimes the backlight will do it, or it's easy to add those in some post production software.
