I would really appreciate some opinions on this.
I am shooting a commercial for an insurance company soon. The commercial takes place entirely in a large office. I have attached a picture.
The office contains a series of overhead 4100k Fluorescent t8 globes, with a CRI of 75. the windows are slightly tinted, with a small bit of green cast.
Now obviously if I had the money, I'd replace the overhead fixtures with Kino k55 globes, which I assume would work fine, even if the ballasts are magnetic (am i mistaken?)
We do not have the money for a pre-rigging day to replace all the globes, so I'd decided to just either gel my kino fixtures, or basically build "ghetto" flos out of home depot fixtures using their overhead globes.
From what i gather, this will create an overall consistent color bias across the frame that can be timed out later, although the windows would go bluish.
Is there any other way to go about this? Suggestions would be welcome.
1.) Use 5500k Kino flos for all the foreground action to allow for great skintone? this will allow the windows to be correctly color balanced and let the background go greenish-warm..
2.) put their 4100k industrial phillips tubes into my kino flo fixtures and white balance to that
