In Topic: Am I crazy to use a light meter to set exposure for video vs. WFM?

Zebras is a great idea. It's probably an issue of experience—I need to learn to trust them.  All I really want out of life is for faces to be the same implied brightness from shot to shot. Sort of  like having a reference white and  black in every shot.

I'll give zebras a try and see how it goes, and you're right about switching them off—they are fairly distracting when used throughout. 

Thanks to both of you.

Great nuances to think about and work on. Thanks.  

 Love Witch has such stunning lighting—so much beautiful work with highlights and speculars vs. blacks.

 

How did you meter for that show? Was it all with the monitor? And about how many stops were there between highest and lowest light levels in your interiors?
