Lighting a Guitar Shop
Posted 04 September 2009 - 07:33 PM
I am shooting a short film on S16, and the director wants a very real, yet somewhat gritty look. Some references he had in mind were "Crash" and "The Wrestler". I have attached a picture of the shop during the daytime. We are shooting at night, and I am going to another locations scout tonight. I am shooting it with 7219/500T stock and then doing color correction in Lustre. In the picture, there will be a customer and someone behind the counter at the register.
So for lighting, I am considering rigging a four bank kino above the counter and getting a squid to space the bulbs out a little. Then I was going to have an 1.2 HMI outside playing. Also, if you notice the red string lights behind the counter, I was going to play those up by have a betweenie diffed down with a red gel playing as a small backlight on the person behind the counter. I hope that this is understandable to all of you out there.

Although, if you want "gritty," maybe you'll stick with some of the green fluorescent bulbs that are in the practical fixtures.
