I'm lighting a show soon that should be very interesting. It's an interview type show called, Extreme Prophetic. I've attached an email below that explains what the producer wants the new season to look like. What exactly are the CSI NEON lights. I think that look is created with colored gels, lots of kinos, color timing and art direction. Any suggestions on creating a look for this show will be helpful.
We are doing a redesign of our set from the theme "Light Belongs
in the Darkness" to "Growing in the Supernatural". We want to
change the photos from "Street Shots" to snapshots of the
supernatural. We are looking at Robert Bartow's images of
Angels, Lion of Judah, Stairways to Heaven and looking for
others that depict Heavenly Warriors, Portals of Glory, Columns
of Light, Company's of Angels, Rainbows, Orbs etc. PK would
like to use NEON colors of green, blue purple and gold. We will
be getting rid of the chainlink fence and brick wall and
replacing them with possibly.....additional hanging photos
depicting columns of light, rainbows, orbs, etc. Steve, take a
look at Bartow Images .com we NEED a photo of a warrior angel.
Anyway let me know your brilliant ideas and photo ideas and
thoughts on the NEON colors. The new CSI on Monday Nights is
using the them and they look amazing. So PK is working on the
show themes which I will forward on to you all to help with
ideas. One thing is for sure we don't WANT the set or any phots
to look religious.
Can you give more detail on the "NEON Light shades"? What exactly
are they? I am copying Chris Cooke (our lighting director) in this
message as he will have some good input. My concern/question would
be...if you continue to use the infinity black background, we have
to be careful not to cast too much light on the curtain.
guess the more detail you can give us on what you are thinking,
the better our opinions and suggestions would be.

I just got sent a picture of the posters that they want to use. I'm not too impressed. It doesn't look like they have much of a color scheme or even a comon theme (maybe light is the theme?). I'll be contacting them with my thoughts but I still would like some input on how to get the CSI look that I think they want. I'm really hesitant to have blown out hilights and super saturated colors on an interview set because it can distract the eye.
