hey guys

i'm needed some lighting advice. so i'm doing a wooded shot..camera on piccolo crane over a 60 foot dolly run...properly crewed and setup for success. i have an effects guy who will be hazing a very large area

so in terms of the lighting, I'm looking for some examples from movies, your shoots etc (not so much set stills but actual examples of the final to help explain to my crew what I"m going for)

i'm doing a combination of dark moody pooled lighting, the typical shafts of light, large lights up high backlighting haze evenly

any advice or input would also be very much appreciated. In general terms, i"m showing dark progression and moody (at the beginning of the move) to more brightly lit distinct shafts of light (at the end). very slow dolly push and camera moves

we will have 2 -12ks HMIs, a couple of 4k HMIs, a ocuple of 1.2k hmis, possibly a maxibrute, 2- 5k fresnels, 2 - 2k fresnels, 12 1k molepars etc

thanks!!

a little clarity:

i'm doing a bunch of different styles within the one shoot

over the course of the move it will go from
dark, moody
to
pooled lighting
to shafts of lights backlighting haze
to larger areas where haze is more evenly lit from lights up high


any examples of these you have would be a wonderful help

thanks!!
