Hello Lighting Experts,

 

Does anyone know how they lit this b/w scene at 4:48 in this Vimeo short called "The Come Up":

 

 

From the wide angle shot after the scene it looks like they had one light on a stand as a reverse key, but I'm not sure. It really is a beautifully lit b/w shot imo.

 

Thanks,

Ben

Key light is to camera left coming through the door with diffusion suplied by the frosting on the door.

 

A kicker light behind the young kid to make him pop from the scene and finally I believe there is a large soft fill light from around where the camera is to lift their faces a littlr.

Yes I would agree with Oliver - typical 3 point key from door. Digital rain.
