i'm planning on using par 64s to create strong shafts of light coming through a row of windows, imitating moonlight. The action will be backlit entirely by this, some fill being provided by redish alarm lights in the foreground (practicals). I have never used par 64s before (but they make sense in terms of budget), so I'm unsure regarding the following issues:
- in order to give the pars a blueish tint, i will have to gel them with some degree of ctb. how much light will i loose doing this / is the loss as significant as with tungsten lights?
- i want my light shafts to be rather large, filling whole windows. i'm unsure whether i would need to go with a nsp in order to provide the necessary beam structure and if this will cover an area too small. will i be ok with a wide flood bulb or will it be impossible to get a strong shaft out of this? the interior will be hazed, of course.
thanks for your help.
