I am a student of cinematography from India and am going to shoot a short film soon on ARRI 16 SRII or ARRIFLEX 16 BL. Now, its a night setup with ample amount of light coming from window. I am planning to use tungsten (fresnel and open) 600W-1KV bulbs for interior lighting. For lights to be used in EXT that could be light coming from a street lamp or a tube light outside a window, I want to know what kind of lights I should use to differentiate between color and tones of INT & EXT.
Either I should go with HMI's (2.5KV-5KV) or I should go with cellophane coloured gels on tungsten only.
I don't have the facility of a color temperature meter so cant exactly set the color tempreture or use gels accordingly.
Help will be appreciated.
