Hey all, I'm DP'ing my first VFX centric gig and I've got a couple months to prep.
We are shooting in a large shared warehouse space. There isn't enough money to green screen everything, so we've planned on only green screening our set extension and shooting hanging black duve around the whole space. We will likely have one HMI (1800w), a 1K fresnel, and several 1x1 LED Panels. My questions are:
1) Do you have any lighting tips when shooting a set extension shot mixing green screen and black backdrops?
2) Any tips to keep light off the duve hanging everywhere (especially the floor)?
3) How to get the most out of the HMI lighting a large space (toplight with a butterfly?)
I've attached some storyboards, any advice is appreciated!
