I am shooting a 16mm short on a bolex which takes place in a commercial bathroom. The area is lit using these cheap white-greenish neon tubes and i am very unfamiliar with them. I was wondering about the effect of neon lighting in comparison to the tungsten which i will most likely be using. I will be shooting 24 fps and 32 fps ;Does neon lighting produce some sort of flicker ? I've shot it before on digital and i've noticed it is a very unstable source in terms of consistency. Is there such an effect on film as well ? What color temperature does neon produce ?

I am trying to achieve a white/greenish light for the scene so i was wondering if it would be simpler/possible using the neons than using gels on my tungsten lights.

Please forgive any questions you may deem ignorant ; i am a simple student.

Thanks.
