Hey,

I'm going to be shooting on Tri-X Super 8 stock indoors at night (and one shot outdoors). The film says it's especially for indoors and night shoots. Daylight 200, Tungsten 160. My camera runs at 18fps.

I wanted to know the best way to light a scene indoors at night. I didn't know if a couple of lamps would do it? Even though I'm shooting at night, I want it to look like it's at night as well, so I dont want loads of lights, but at the same time I want it to come out on film, rather than it being way too underexposed.

I have 1 super 8 movie light, which when turned on lights up the entire room and the bulb begins burning instantly. But it seems way too bright.

I dont have access to any other lighting kit, nor money, so I wanted to do this as cheap and as simple as possible. Do you know if there's anyway of achieving this?

Thanks.
