Hey all,

Can anyone think of a few good examples of interior shots lit only by the moon coming in through windows?

Also, does anyone have a trick for creating the look of passing headlights through a window?

Many thanks!

There are some moonlight-only shots in Road to perdition and American Beauty. The last half-hour of American Beauty, in particular, has some beautiful stuff.

For headlights I think I'd just mount a couple of spotted babies or mickey-moles on a t-bar so you can swing it over the scene.

Adding some smoke in the room could be helpful to create an ambiance. This smoke create a ray of lights (perhaps blue) over the dark background

hope helps
