Lighting inside Civil War Tent
Posted 16 March 2006 - 02:27 AM
Next week I am shooting another S16 short on a sound stage with a large canvas tent like the one in the photo below. I have (4) 10k's as well as (4) 2k's and several 1ks and 4' and 2' Kinos -- also trying to get some 750w Par Cans. I read the article in Jan. 2006 article about how Prieto lit the inside of the tent but his scenes were lit for night. My scenes play out during the day and I am hoping to blast the 10k's through the thick canvas and supplement from inside the tent with the kino's and other smaller units. I am not going for really low key but I do want some contrast and shadows.
I am shooting on 7218 so we will have plenty of stop and I am using Zeiss Primes that range from T 1.4 to T 2 and also a Canon Zoom T2.8
Has anyone ever lit a scene/film like this? Had experience with lighting through thick canvas?
It is a period piece - a satire - If Grant was drunk at Appomattox.
