hey there, i'm shooting a new short next week using 2 dvx 100B.
it's all happening in around 1915 in a women prison.
i've got a scene happening in the alley (check attached picture) which i will be shooting with the sun in 3/4 backlight with some haze.
the rest of the shoot will be inside the old cave/prison (check attached picture). the cave has only one small window facing a huge door.
for the day scenes , i'm planning to place a 5k outside the window (the window will be covered with black block to create a tent around it) and bouncing some red heads on foam board to fill the walls. i will also have some dedo lights, 120cm 4 banks kinflo and china balls.
for the night scenes, i will use the 5k outside with half ctb on it. i will also have some oil lanterns as practicals. i will mimic these with china balls on dimmers (mounted on sound boom) and straw(the moving ones) and the fix ones with dedo lights.
i will also use some haze to bring the shadows up a bit.
My main concern is on how to reveal the beauty of the stones. any thoughts on that and the overall setup?

tricky shot:
the lead actress in standing in front of the window and the light changes from sunlight to moon in the shot
so i'm planing to place the 5k with a frame containing the following :
1/4 cto( on top), then 1/2 cto +nd3(in the center)then 3/4 + nd6 (on the bottom) and move the light down and pan it off. i will also have a 120 kinoflo next to mimic the sky light. the kinoflo will also be panned off shortly after the 5k is completly off. simultaneously a 2k with 1/2 ctb will be panned on and the ped up to mimic the moon light...
what do you think of this complication? any input will be appreciated

Ps: the look i'm looking for is from "long dimanche de fiancailles" and "the other boleyn girl " (see attached pictures)
Regards,
Elie Kamal

Capture the texture of the stones by either placing a light flat against the wall and facing up or down. It would probably make more sense to do this from the top, so just put say a Redhead on a pole cat right against the wall and it will bring out the texture, and will slowly fade off across the wall.

The way I imagine this scene is to be very dark with lots of contrast... is this what you are going for?
