Hey guys,

 

I have this job with part day, part night scenes, all exterior, sunny look, but with bad weather on my way.

It's a pool party for a fashion film. 

My budget is not that big, and I have to pick between HMIs or TUNG lights to make all the job. NIght and daylight exterior.

Can you send some ideias with your experience?

 

The câmera is a RED EPIC DRAGON.

The look of the film is pretty colorfull with a lot of gels and some uv light.

 

Thanks

If they are willing to pay for HMI's get them.  You can always warm them with CTO gels but cooling off tungsten with CTB will cause you to lose a lot of level.

Get a mix, HMIs for the big stuff, tungsten for the small night stuff. It's hard to deal with an HMI when all you need is a 300w tungsten.

 I did a mix with big HMIs and some small tung lights. Also with gels as CTS and CTO. 

Thanks.
