How to set up interrogation lighting, spotlight.
Posted 20 March 2008 - 09:21 PM
I'm going to be filming a video soon that calls for a scene where someone is sitting in a chair in a pitch black room, the only light being a single bulb above him that pretty much lights only him and the ground below him, basically a spot light. I don't want it to light up the rest of the room.
I don't have any money to spend for this as its a one time use deal (helping friend with a school video project) but was wondering if you guys had any good ideas for achieving this effect with lights easily available at home or elsewhere.
My plan so far is to put a longer "shield" of foil on a simple clamp light directing the light in a single direction as much as possible but I still get a decent amount of ambient light from that.
Any suggestions or advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.

Yeah, a more directional bulb should definitely help, not sure why I didn't think of that earlier.
I'll also check out some slide projectors on ebay, sounds like you could get some cool looks with one, could even possibly be used in future projects.
Thanks again for the suggestions.
