I'm shooting a short film on the RED One camera and would like to ask some advice. I'm shooting in a classroom with overhead fluorescent lighting (cool white T8 that seem to be approx 4100K). There is also some filming in the various hallways of the school with the same lighting. In the classroom there are a couple of large windows which I will be able to light thru, possibly a couple of 4K HMI's or maybe one 18K. Most of the action takes place within the classroom and all during daylight hours to feel like mid day.
My question is what to do colour temperature wise. I don't know if we have the time or money to switch all the bulbs to daylight balanced.
If I leave all the bulbs as is in the classroom / hallways and split the colour balance of the camera to around 5000K does that seem crazy? Will I feel the green spill from the overhead lights?
Would love to hear anyones thoughts?
If I take digital stills on the scout will that give me a good indication of the balance between the daylight and fluorescents?
Thanks in advance for your help, thoughts and time.
All the best,
