I am making a short flm and have a scene in a small room with no windows. There will be 5 actors in this scene. Any ideas for lighting. Want to keep the room dingy. What color walls would work best?

This is a pretty broad stroke of a scene you have just described. maybe as an idea for a starting point, get something overhead and soften to taste so that you get those shadows in the eye sockets. Then try to take some of that light off the walls, maybe even a soft line on the walls creating a gradient? As far as wall color, I think that's more of an art dept thing, but if it's a heroine den maybe go some kind of vile green? if it's not that intense maybe a grey? Stay away from white!

If you wanna go all Batman Forever (1995), I'd chroma- hot pink the walls and use half blue 1/2 and half 1/2 green on their faces. Fit some neon beer signs or "OPEN" sign in the background and you're done!
