Hey guys, i have a shoot coming up where i have to light a boardroom. We are shooting in front of green screen. I was thinking of lighting the screen with a few soft sources of lights, possibly with a few blondies heavily diffused.
There are 7 talents at the boardroom table, lit with 2, 4ft kino over head. I also wanted to place a 2k bounced off a white poly board from the head of the table to give each talent some contrast and to fill the face a bit.
The table in the boardroom however will be draped with a green screen too. I was wandering how to avoid the green spill that may leak on to the talents.
We will be shooting with a digibeta with digi prime lenses.

How do you guys think this set up sounds??

Please give me some feedback and advice
regards

As long as the kinos and bounce light you are using to light your subjects casts an even light on the table then you should be alright. Having them so close to the table will inevitebly create spill, but if they wear dark suits that should minimize some of it....as well as staging them to not be leaning over the table a lot. Modern key programs are very good so if you have a talented post guy you should be alright.

Thank you for your reply. I think i'll take you advice and get the talents to lean slightly away from the table
once again, thanks.
