Whoa seems hard, I considered myself shooting a scene in elevator and came up with idea that it would be the best to have the cabin of the elevator put in the studio and have the possibility to rebuild as needed; removable walls ceiling etc. try to think of cheap way to build it .
This is my first post and need a lot of help. as part of our college project we are making a film on canon XL1 entirely being shot in a elevator, can u guys plz give suggestions on how to and with wat lights can i light up d lift and also other advices if possible ....i'll be greatful
As to lightning I would try to keep the original character i.e. soft lights from above I would use kinoflos lots of black paper and flags to help the actors stand out from the background

I?m guessing but you might be able to remove some tiling or use a speed rail above.
Mega think out your cords and if they are going to be pulled by any machinery!!
You might want to get a building supervisor to ok your work. The last thing you want is destroy your equipment or damage the elevator itself. Or kill your actors, then they can?t act? silly actors
