In Topic: Bus stop at night and Bill Henson inspiration

05 December 2017 - 07:33 AM

Thank you everyone for your answers!

 

For the moonlight background, I'll do how you said and how I imagined, so I'll get something big and put it full flood far away. Yeah I don't want to lit the background too much, but just slightly more than the Dark screenshot.

 

As for the recreating the light of the Bill Henson photo, I kept looking and imagined using one ARRI Fresnel 300 for the yellowish cast and one daylight HMI (like the ARRI D5) for the soft blueish light (or maybe another tungsten with CTB depending on budget). 

In all the takes, I'll use the blueish light as a key and the yellow tungsten as a backlight.

 

Do you think this is enough?

 

All the best,

 

G.

Thank you for your answer! 

The bus stop will be in the middle of nowhere, so there will be no road lights.

 

Yes I thought of LCD panels as they are quite convenient and easy to use. What kind of tungsten do you have in mind?

 

I was also wondering about lighting the background (which will be woods too), but I'm not sure about which kind of light to choose as I don't think we'll have enough budget to get big skypanels. So I thought about some kind of light and a big diffusion frame.

Yes, the whole scene takes place at night at this bus stop. At the beginning the characters will be in the bus stop but then they walk a bit, not so far, but the light will need to different as they won't be lit by the bus stop.

 

Concerning the color temperatures mix, yes it is first a pure aesthetic decision as the director and I really like this color palette, and then because the short has an ethereal and dreamy story and we wanted to convey that with a special lighting.
