Just found the site and this is my first post.
So I've decided after about 15 years to get back into Cinematography. The last time I shot anything was with an Arri BL 16mm. Now I'm starting all over again, but this time with video like the RED ONE, Sony XD. I had a good understanding about lighting for film. Is there going to be much difference with lighting for video? What I would really like to know is what's the best way to go when lighting a room using existing overhead fluorescent lighting? It's more there for an effect that we are after. Just enhances the general look of the particular room. I know with film, gels and what not were needed to compensate, however with Video and all thats available with the technology, do the same principles apply?
