My 2 freinds who one of them is a producer, and the other who is a Doc Director want to make some money, they want me to be there DP.(who live in taiwan)
So they decided to make 15~30 mint Educational short films about how to improve in business making. Such as how can a business manager be a good leader and what not, and they are aiming to be selling these short films online in China.
The first short film is going to be shot in a office with 3 actors, we'll be using a PD-170, and im sure we wont have lighits. So i was wondering how could i make the lighting nice even thou i dont have any?
I'm not so worried on how to shoot it, but wouldnt miind some suggestions.

You can bounce light with a poly board, as to lower your contrast (usually, you have one main source of natural light aviable and you need fill-in) and soften the shadows (since a poly board is a wide soft source, while a window can give a hard light if no clouds), looking nice on someone's face, the light sort of wrap it. On wide shots, you can't put it close to the person, but the face is not as noticable as in a close-up... You can also use a mirror (for the face in the wide shot).
