Hey there!

I'm wondering if anyone can help me with a scene I'm lighting. It is an interior night scene, with an exterior on the blacony. It has moonlight and shadows. The story goes that a young boy walks through his home in the middle of the night to find his father on the balcony preparing to jump off. It is not an eerie scene, nor sinister nor sad. It is meant to be a dreamlike, somewhat magical (my director's words) scene. There will be white billowing curtains from the balcony.

I wanted to know if anyone had any tips on how to make the scene beautiful, very smooth and soft and nice..dreamlike..i guess. I was thinking a pro-mist filter but that might just make it cheesy and way too soft and halate everything. The only other thing i'm thinking is to have a low contrast ratio and use soft lighting, with polly reflection etc.

If anyone has any other ideas/tips etc. from past experience or whathaveyou, then please pass it along!

Thanks very much,
