I'm going to be shooting a scene where my character is watching tv in a dark room and pretty much the only light will be coming from the tv.
How should I go about lighting this to make it look real?
I've seen this tutorial, but I'm not entirely convinced it's the best way (It's at 2:10):
I also want to do a reverse shot showing the tv and what he's watching. Should I set the tv to a white screen then replace the screen with the footage of what he's watching in post? Does anyone ever actually shoot the tv screen playing in camera?
