Relatively new to this board but diving straight in! I'm due to be DPing a short drama in the next month and two particular scenes take place in a dingy bathroom, the second of which is a dream sequence.
I am likely going to use a couple of cool white Kino tubes to motivate the existing fluro practical above the sink, but in the dreamscape I'm intending on having these produce a sickly, washed-out green that falls flat across the subject's face. The background would be a slightly more saturated/greener hue, with some shadows/falloff around the edge of the frame.
In terms of inspiration, the below still from Wong Kar Wai's 'Fallen Angels' is closest to what I want to achieve. Our female protagonist will be fronting up to the mirror (where the camera will be), similar to here:
I was wondering if anyone knew/could speculate on how this scene was lit from this angle, and whether the colours were something achieved with a particular choice of gel (i.e. plus green?) or something else entirely,i.e. in-camera with white balance adjustment.
