I am going to be gaffing on a project in about 2 weeks and I need some help please,because I am absolutely lost
We will be shooting in a small studio (http://www.whiteroom...lr-1024x651.jpg)
Lighting we have: 6x800w openfaces,650w fresnel,3x 300w fresnel.
Have some limited budget for grip equipment,need to decide which.
Director wants a white limbo,soft light with a bit of halation around subjects and has a lot of shots which rotate 180 degrees.
I am thinking to light bg and actors separately. Will overlapping openfaces from each side with a bit of diffusion do the trick? Or is it better to shoot through 4x4 frames?
Is bouncing from the ceiling (or muslin) and adding neg fill with floppies be my best bet?
Any tips would be greatly appreciated! ;p
