Nice. How are you mainly lighting the room? And why did you go with the S2's?

When you say "80's feel", were you talking about the script or the look they are after?

We're using the S2's because those are the perfect lenses to achieve some sort of period feel when shooting with the RED.

We went with natural light from outside, changed flourobars inside to 5000K bulbs and augmented some shots with kinoflos and bounced 575s.

The script is set in the 80s, but since we've such a limited budget some things like the whiteboard can't be avoided.

Those stills look great. The lighting feels really natural. The costumes and production design are nice too.

I really like the wider look with more negative space. They’re strong compositions. It looks really good.

Great, the RED looks less clinical than I've seen in images from the camera.
