I've become involved with a music video project which has a rather low production budget (naturally), the director as a result has decided to shoot on HDV and for various reasons will not have their mind changed.
Now I have no problem with this but having never worked with HDV before I have little idea how to go it.
The director wants interior shots, artificial light (incandescent), lots of shadowy corners etc. They're very against a daylight look so the likes of kinos and neutral practicals are out of the question.
My initial thoughts are to light up the scene with tungsten and WB to get them around 4000k, light up the shadow areas and crush them back down in post (I'm aware of low light problems in HDV).. However the director wants strong colours, if I go too warm with the Ts how will HDV register the colours?
Sorry for the vagueness but any help pointing my feet in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!
