need help / sugestions

right, so the room wich i am going to shoot in is going to be a kitchen in an really old house, out in the country; roughly 4 / 4 meters and the ceiling is TILTED at its highest point is about 2 meters high ( at the door) and gose down to about 1.6 -1.5 meters, at the wall facing the doorway. the action will take place at night, so light thru the windows and doorway is pretty much ruled out. i don.t see how i can hang any top lights as they would be in the shot
will appreciate any thoughts on this matter,
thank you kindly !

If you absolutely need to add a light to the ceiling, sometimes you can get the art department to put a fake beam in there to hide a light behind it. Otherwise, I'd probably rule out top light and light from the sides, either with an on-camera practical, or by hiding a light behind furniture, or both.

Fabric keeps the light source very low profile. if drooping is a problem, then you can use bead board or showcards.

i think i`ll check out both of the situations ( on camera practical, and light bounced off the ceilig).
thank you again, and till next time, take care !
