I need to light some evening scenes for a drama, about 8 o'clockisch. Which is pretty dark here.
The problem is that I get either to light or I get a "evening-no light-shot homevideo" look.

We don't have that much light to work with:

2x redhead
2x ricelamps
Ordinary lightbulbs
+ blue, frost, orange filters

I don't know how great we can get it I only know it can be better then what we've acomplished.
Incase you're wondering it's shot with Sony VX1000
It's several rooms in a small apartment that has to be lit like this

Thankfull for any advice

Hey now,

Sounds like you're doing what can be done with the lights you have. At least it is dark outside and you don't have to sweat color temp matching the window light. Since your using video, move the lights around and see what you can come up with. We all wrestle with these scenarios as the stock and trade of this industry.

Knock 'em dead, man,
Paul
