I'm a student at the first year of cinematography.
This weekend I'm shooting an 8 min. short movie, in a studio.
We are building up the entire set and I would like some suggestion for the lighting / colours.
The short is entirely set in a single room.
The main character live in his room all his life since he was born.
He's in fact affected by XP syndrome that means that he can't be expose under UV rays + photophobia.
What this comport is that his room can have only low power light and filtered bulbs.
What we come up with is :
Two black curtains that let a tiny ray of sunlight enter, between them.
About 20 little bulbs hanging around the room, hitting little part of the walls.
Two practical table lamps.
The colours: light-green for the walls and red + orange for the bulbs(light).
I would really love to know what you think about it,
if you have any suggestion, or how would you set the light up.
Note: I'm shooting with a Panasonic 101, lenses 1.4 max IRIS.
How can I avoid the underexposure (=grainy picture) still having a quite low key light ?
A photophobic short movie.
