and ive heard that these are notoriously difficult, and im starting to agree!
i dont have the access to light from inside other tenants doorways so here's what i was thinking i would do?
i have to keep this simple and the track is about 7 seconds long at a slow walking pace.
im thinking i will affix a soft source 250 on the dolly above the eyeline and use a barrauda pole to hang another one above and behind the subject as a backlight motivated by the overhead lights in the middle of the ceiling
do you think this will work?

Try to build the lights into the set or/and beef up existing lighting. That's usually the only way on long corridors unless you're on a set. You can try to swing a light on a pole from the dolly, but chances are it's going to end up compromising your framing and it's hard to make it interactive with other sources in frame comvincingly.

David's suggestion is really good. I remember the barracks scenes in Stripes They used the rafters to hide lights and still get up-angles. I'd go with David's idea. In fact, I'm going to steal it and use it myself.

Each hallways is different, but start by seeing what natural light you have and go from there!
