Hello Pro. DP's and Gaffers out there,
I am lighting a bedroom in a dialogue scene between a mother and her schizophrenic child. We want the scene to feel like its taking place during a sunset, but we want dramatic lighting. We also want to create a contrast between a warm interior and a slightly blue exterior.
I did a simple lighting test on the actual location using two basic 2K tungsten lights.
First picture is the lighting setup taken during the afternoon, where the second and third are taken right after sunset (a little photoshopping was done on the last two -- i changed the window color to a cyan blue and pushed the contrast).
I put one 2K open face with a chimera on it,at the left of frame, and another 2K open face just outside the window as you can see. The open face is gelled orange, and white balance is set at 3200. I exposed at F11 (about 2 stops under N).
If I want to follow the basic idea, any suggestions on how I can make the lighting even better?
I am shooting the film on Kodak 500T, 5219.
Any ideas greatly appreciated!
