lighting a corridor
Posted 04 February 2009 - 11:26 AM
i am about to shoot my diploma film, 35mm project.
i have to light up a corridor area where I could see the end of the corridor (night scene) with the gate open, as well as the end ceiling as well as the floor. there are rooms on either side of the hospital corridor. on the ceiling will be a few tube lights (switched on) i am wondering how could one go about light up such an area. also I want the image to have a lil soft look with the lighting.
could you please suggest me something? reference images will be helpful.

What is going to happen in the shot? Is it a tracking shot following someone down the corridor? If that's the case then you could light a few of the rooms to create pools of light every few meters and leave the tube lights as they are. I'm guessing they're some kind of flourescents which might add a grenish tint to the shadows which I always thought looked quite nice.

its a long corridor, probably 30 feet in length
the only source of light are the tubes hung above
its a slow track in shot from the long shot of the man in the other end of the corridor talkin on the phone to his mid close
how do i achieve in getting the slightly greenish shadows, plus what lights should i use to mix with the tubes.
more so, i was worried about the intensity of the light produced by the tubes.
what should i do to get a slight greenish tint that u r talkin of?
