I have a shoot this tuesday, it's going to be two people sitting on a table.
one on the head of the table the other on his lefthand side facing each other.
The director wants it to be a bit dramatic, warm and classy.
This is what i came up with for a lighting plan:
I havent included lights for the background in the diagram since i don't know what the bg will look like.
The will sit in front of a big wine rack that i will probably backlight with one or two 800w redheads or a blonde if needed.
the camera will be the sony PDW-700 HD camera with HD eng lenses.
I was just wondering if you guys think this is the best way to go or if you have some suggestions.
greetings and thanks,

Hard to be specific, not seeing the location, the actors, the intended feel, but I figure this is how Id ball park it.

That's a lighting plan that can suit a million stories but if we don't know where you're coming from, to reach that point of the story and what it entails, and going to, then how can we give you an opinion?
Have you got any image references that match what you are trying to achieve?
Is it daytime? nightime? are there windows? What ratio of contrast are you looking to achieve? etc etc....
I'm sorry and please don't take it the wrong way but it really is as vague as that.
