I must congratulate you for working under such strict limitations. Were you allowed to use any light controlling devices at all? For example, would the school have an objection to you taking a piece of white cardboard and taping aluminum foil to it? Then you would have a cheap reflector on one side and a soft bounce on the other side. Your lighting budget would be about a dollar.
If they object to that, then you could get real snobby and quote Fellini: "film is light." I am totally kidding of course, but I do find that some schools (and I am not saying this is true about yours necessarily) have a tendency to not place enough value on the understanding of lighting and what it can do for your story.
I once was going to shoot a student project and the director told me that lights were not allowed on this shoot. Her school's justification was that lights were not necessary because it was shot on video and that the project was not about the cinematography but rather about telling a story. I have to disagree with this, because these things are integral to the telling of a story. Cinematographers are equal participants in telling a story. Okay, now I'll get off my soapbox.
