Hi everyone, 

 

I have to emulate a scene from a film or music video and there is a shot in Flight Facilities - Clair De Lune music video where a girl is standing next to two windows pouring milk into a glass and I was just wondering how to recreate this look? The link is attached below and the scene I'm enquiring about is at 6:20 but do you think it is achieved through natural light or lights with CTB gels? 

Any insight would be much appreciated!!!

It looks rather like at least one light was used to create a small highlight seen on the windows and the fridge. This would have a daylight colour temperature, you could use either CTB on tungsten or use a HMI

I'd believe it was available light - possibly that highlight is a practical.

 

You could make any overcast day look like that, although it's easier to do it at real dusk (as opposed to just underexposing) if you want other lighting to look bright by comparison to the daylight.

 

A large contributor to the look of that, too, I'd have said, is the use of real anamorphic lenses.
