I'll be shooting a horror short in 2 weekes. We just managed to arrange our principal location and now I had a small question regarding lighting for a base level.
The story will take place during 1 night and all in the same location. It's style is based on the tv-series Hannibal. The more the story progresses, the more chiaroscuro I think I will be going.
My question is regarding to the main living room. This room is quite big : 6m wide vs 15m length. Since I would like to have a small base level of lighting I'm thinking of hanging practicals. ie chandeliers. These give light and can be put into the frame. The only thing is that I have no idea how big these should be. I'm shooting on alexa with zeis hi-speeds.
Would it be enough if each chandelier gave the equivalent of a 1K? say 10 100watt-bulbs?
I'm guessing a base leven of f4 would be very nice.
Thanks in advance
