Wally Pfister Eye Light

Also where do you think he puts it, right over the camera or a large source farther back?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I understand that it is 'just an eyelight' - I was only wondering if anyone knew the exact type of light that he used, yes it is round, could be a roscoe litepad, could be a softbox, could be a tweenie -- just opening the discussion to it was all.

On The Prestige and The Dark Knight they used a Litepanels 1x1 and a Kamio ring light.

There's an article on the ASC website where the gaffer on the Dark Knight explains:
"For close-up and medium shots of the couple, an Arri LoCaster LED with a 1'x1' soft-box snoot and interchangeable diffusion frames provided eyelight, and 5K tungsten Chimeras provided a soft edge. “We always tried to approach the eyelight from a complimentary angle to the camera,” says Geryak. “If the camera was over someone’s right shoulder, I’d stand over his left shoulder and try to wrap the light from the key side so it looked more natural.”

I've used old Scoop lights covered with diffusion to achieve this. I've also done round cutouts for LED bicolor panels. Round looks better in eyes. But the Rifa also works.
