I've got a film coming up where the two lead characters both briefly trip on acid and for a short period we see into their world during their trip. This is potentially more of a cutting question, but the lighting heavily affects it, so apologises..

 

Anyway we are trying to contrast their feelings and experiences but they are both working towards the same object and so part of that we thought we could have one in quite an orange environment and the other in a teal environment. Before actually talking colour we had one character in a quarry and the other in a house interior. After talking colours we thought the quarry in afternoon orange light and the interior potentially at night with tungsten balanced stock but also a bunch of daylight balanced globes. As both characters work towards the same object it'll be cutting between the two.

 

Basically I am wondering what people think of cutting between what would be quite an orange scene and a very teal scene, and, just as importantly, if people know of some examples where this has been done in other films?

 

Cheers in advance!

Can't say I've ever seen it in another film but it does sound like a great way of setting up some contrasting between scenes...

 

I say go for it!
