Hi guys, I've a shooting in two weeks. I need to light an interior at night with 2 x 1kFresnel. We have shower curtains to make some diffussion in the set and a DIY reflector . The thing is that I don't know how to place the projectors to get a lighting for a dialogue of 3 persons sitting on a table. I made this scheme. I don't know if it is the correct way to lighting this scene, that's why I asking you guys howI can  improve this lighting. What do you think?

I think i would rig the lamps above the table pointing straight down onto table using the reflector to bounce back the light onto the actors [keeping reflector out of shot ]
