I think I’ve seen this discussed before but would still love any advice I can get for this scenario.
I have a shoot with 2 people talking in a booth at a restaurant in front of window (think opening scene Pulp Fiction). I need to expose for the exterior because the characters will be looking out into the street at someone getting into their car.
The scene is fairly long so I am worried about relying only on natural daylight from the outside with the sun repositioning so much.
We are probably limited to house power.
Here are my questions:
What kind of output would I need to provide a subtle fill on the characters inside the restaurant? Would 4 bank Kinos be enough?
If I did supplement the exterior would an Arri m18(assuming I can get one with such a low budget) be enough to add at least some directionality and consistency from the window light? Keeping in mind we are seeing outside the window so positioning it out of the shot might be a challenge.
Lighting package consists of
4 bank Kinos
2 bank kinos
Joker 400 Chimera 5’ Octabox
maybe Arri m18
Arri tungston 3-light kit, 1k, 650, 350
Camera: Red Dragon ASA 800,
Lenses: Zeiss cp.2
Thanks for the help,
