Originally my plan was/is to key from a "moon light" source, which would be coming from the large french doors (with blinds or satin).
I was going to bounce a 1200 or 2.5k off ultra bounce, and let that flood into the door windows. Inside the room I may or may not have nightstand lamps on (I would dim them down as to not throw too much light from them) (reason is because later on in the scene I will have the room door open, and I need nice tungsten light from the hall to spill in and light up the actors over key.

PROBLEM:
This shot is scheduled during the day!

So my only options are to scrap the larger light/ultra bounce Idea, Black out the windows, and cheat the key from inside the room with a joker 200/400..

Or build a box around the windows/doors and still light from outside the doors.

Does anyone have opinions or what you would do?

Without seeing a location I would say tent the windows from the outside and bounce your light in. But some places are ahrd to tent so you may want to talk to your key grip and see what he thinks.
