The script does have night interiors and oil lamps and candles is all they would have used. Any advice or help on how to artificially light for this??
For the night interiors, I would go for a warm, under-exposed key (1/2 to 1 stop under) with a key-fill ratio of about 8:1. I would also recommend a lot of fall-off using nets/flags to subtly boost the accent on the subjects, motivate realistic candle lighting, and create vignetting in the corners of your frame. Maybe use black wrap or a snoot over your lighting units to better focus the light and reduce spill on unwanted areas. I would also suggest playing with a cool moonlight raking across certain parts of the set or subtly backlighting characters. This would be a harder light with a light CTB or steel blue gel.
