I have an upcoming student shoot with an Arriflex 16BL. I have little, to none, experience with lighting for film but I want to do the best possible job and the most possible preproduction that I can.
My first question is: Can I reliably practice lighting for this camera using my 35mm still SLR? I was planning on setting up the lights (Blondies, Redheads and Arris) and taking a variety of stills to check the results.
What do I need to control to recreate the film shoot? ASA of stock? shutter speed? etc?
Is this a worthwhile exercise? I can't really practice with 16mm film because we are only given a very limited amount.
