Have a scene in a relatively small location where someone is sleeping at night and twitching because they are having a violent nightmare. Then they wake up and switch on a lamp with a lampshade on a bedside table.
The movie will be shot with a Varicam.
The director wants a bluish cast to the light in the room.
Thinking about setting the camera for tungsten and using daylight kinos with 1/4 CTO for fill and a 1K HMI fresnel for a rim light on the person.
Now when he turns on the lamp on the bedside table to have an electric turn that on and supplement it with a bounced redhead and 500W tungsten fresnel with maybe 1/8 CTB.
Does this sound like a good plan of attack for this?
Any exposure and/or color balance suggestions?
