Fairy lights as seen in Eyes Wide Shut
Posted 21 October 2009 - 11:19 AM
Am shooting a music video and wondered if anyone knew which fairy lights i could use to create such an effect as the two stills i've added, one from Eyes Wide Shut, and the Other from Red Riding.
Im thinking that kubrick wouldnt have had LED fairy lights when he made these, so was wondering if anyone new the size of bulb or what wattage to use, or is LED the way to go?
In both of these films it looks like all light is coming from the fairy lights bar a little ambience from a chandelier in Kubricks.
I'll be only using fairy lights and a 1000watt rifa. Rooms not very big, bout 3mx3m and 2 tall
shootin 200t kodak wide open most probably
Thanks in advance.
all the best

I agree with Chris , just 12 volt xmas lights ! Kubrick did push a 500 stock at least a stop for that film !!
Cheap white fairy lights but just make sure they're not on one of those cheap dimmers that can cause the lights to flicker.
