This didn't happen at all as planed by we were a little behind and the sun popped back out as it was setting I decided to shoot right into sit slightly cutting the flare with the barn door on the matte box and then just blasted everyone in the car with light. 9light on the girls in the rear and 2.5k hmi with some CTO not far out of frame on mikey in the driver seat. also a 12x silk we used for some other stuff was there so so we have a little fill from that.
2.5k rear third key, 1.2k fill and 9 light on the girls, same scenario as car setup
9light from the right
9 light rear third on the left to warm him up a little and somewhat give the golden hour appearance and a 2.5k with a narrow in it giving a little edge on the dryers...but not much.
2.5k par outside the window in the rear third on the left 2.5k, 2 x 1.2k bounced off the wall frame left for fill....deffinetly needed some more light on the subject and could have watched the window reflections a bit more but overall this is my favorite still from the video for sure.

For the golden hour look, were filters a consideration? Could be an easy way to keep an accurate color tone throughout. But cheers on the Cool Kids vid, it must have been fun.

Don't mean to be rough, but do you know what here cost $10,000 that couldn't have been done for half if not less than that?

as far as filtration goes, na I dont think so....colored filtration isn't doing anything but offsetting white balance, there maybe some benefit to it over color correction as far as picture quality but past that I don't see the point. Im a strong believer in shooting a clean image and then worrying about it when you grade if you wanna do anything like that. Much of the video was shot with mellow ND grads though.
I'm not sure I understand your questions? are you suggesting I should have used different equipment or...? I did not produce the video there fore I cant really account for how it was spent and the shoot being 6months ago its hard for me to remember exactly what happened. I do agree, for $10,000 we really didn't make the most of it which annoys me. I can tell you though the lighting/grip/geny/geny operator did not account for the full 10,000. This shoot was also put together in a matter of 3 or 4 days which was another issue. Like I said though, it was a learning experience....
...Its amazing how much I learned during this shoot. I only went to proper film school for 1 year and it wasn't for cinematography. There is absolutely no way if I were to do this shoot over I would approach it even close to the same way.
