Hello everyone,
I'm preparing a short movie, one scene take place in the bus (moving), day interior. We will film it on 5d. I need an advise, how can I light it? I wanted to make the exterior to be igual, as posible, to the interior.
If I'll put ND gels on the windows, what's types of lights can I post inside? Will kino flo units be enough (gaffer kits), or some HMI bounced of foamcore is necessary (and what's unit, 1.2kw, or..)?
Thanks a lot

It depends on the shots. Rule of thumb is basically that the bigger and wider the shot, the more light is needed. With an ND9 you could probably get away mostly with Kinos without too much of a problem in Medium and Close ups.

Filipo, you need to use your real first and last name, it's one of the forum rules.
