Well, I have short movie as a college,
which happens to be silent movie as well.
Now, the part where i need some advice.

The movie requires three different lighting setup.

One, the normal 3-point setup you have, with a contrast ratio 4:1.

Two, you have a sequence, where the character will be lit in blue light.

Three, the character will be light in red light.

The red and blue lights are placed as back lights and using reflectors for fill. Just something you guys should know.

These are the setup's i have. Now I need help with how to light the blue and red sequence. I have in mind spot lights for the both temperatures in a lamp that i own. I put up a camera and lighting just to check how it would look but didnt turn out the way i want it to.

Any help?

You have to be more specific. What did you want it to look like, and what exactly was wrong with the setup you tried?

If you have any stills of the setup, that would help. But yeah, please be more specific :)
