We're shooting a short film and one scene plays in an apartment. We found this 3rd story apartment and really want to use it, because it is an original 1920s Austrian Apartment.
We need a 7 minute dialogue scene in the Apartment and are thinking of how to shoot it. We wanna shoot it four days and have as little of a hassle as possible (lighting continuity errors)
I thought about putting lights on the balconies and see thru curtains on the windows, but they're not in front of all of the windows (the balconies).
Could I just light it from the inside and somehow place a backlight above the window?
Or does anybody have an idea to add interesting lighting stuff?
What would you guys do?
thanks, Carlo Zappella
