I have to light a submarine that goes under attack from a sea creature, I want to want to replicate the intense red lighting similar to Das Boot and Wrath of Khan (I've attached photos to show what I'm talking about). I recently acquired a few 789 Blood Red lee filter gels to replicate the look. but not really sure the best way to go about it. I have access to some 4K HMI's, 2K Arri Fresnel, and 2K Mole Richardson scooped soft lights. I also have a few Arri 650's and 300's for extra fill or spotting.
the set is in a studio, roughly 8x16
I'd like to also create a mid range depth of field, I'm using old school Christmas lights on the control panel to give the controls colour, but want them out of focus enough to not be able to tell they are Christmas lights but enough to see the emitting light. If anyone has any tips on this it would be appreciated as well.
Thanks so much!
