hey- i'm a freshman film student at SUNY purchase and i'm shooting alot of scenes on 7222. I'm recreating the flickering light from a furnace with a 1k on a dimmer for the key light for the Character infront of the furnace and he'll have an INKI 600 or 750 watts for a backlight. Other than that the room is in complete darkness, those are the only real light sources.

My concern is, will the 200asa be too slow for this setup or will it be fine? Would i need to push it?

Thank you

200 is fine for black and white. Meter for both shadow and highlights, average the two all the while metering at 200. You'll be fine. Can you shoot any tests? How are you going to get the flickering to look natural?

hey, thanks for responding--

yeah i think i'll do a test. I was going to put the 1k on a dimmer and also have a fan blowing some strips of cloth in front of it.
