  1. First of all thanks for the answer. The room is a square 6x6 meters room, we will see the geography of the room, but in a different scene, in this one I will not see the windows in the frame. It has two big windows on the opposite wall. The camera will be always facing the bed from the front and from the side. Imagine a lower angle (nearly the border of the bed) in one shoot from the feet of the actors and then from the side on faces, same height. So you think it would be better to use just one light (diffused trough a light diffusion) to simulate the direct sunlight and another one, smaller, for the pattern ? I'm planning to use two tungsten fresnels, and one bounced tungsten for a bit of base light in the room (from the ceiling ?) Could such a setup be fine ? Again thanks for the advice.
  2. Hi all, I'm going to shoot a low budget short in which there is a "love" scene at sunset between two lovers on a bed. Thee room in which the scene will take place is a 6x6 bedrom, with the bed on the opposite wall of the windows. The two lovers will be lying on the bed and kissing, taken form the side of the bed. I'm thinking about lighting it with two fresnel tungsten heads (2k?) from the windows, maybe drawing something interesting on the higher side of the frame and the background...for example some venetian blinds patterns or something similar, and getting the higher side of the room a bit darker than the rest. I'm thinking about hard shadows and a bit of fill done with a different bounced light. Could that be "interesting" ? Do someone have different ideas on how to light it ? It's an important scene and I want to be a bit "creative" on that, but right now I don't have different ideas that work. help needed! :D thanks
  3. I did it some time ago, i took a fresnel 3200K spot and pointed it into a water basin with an aluminium thin foil on the bottom of it, and then a guy with a stick made the water surface ripple a bit. The thin foil gave the diffuse light and the ripple gave the right flicker... Hope it helps
  4. Sorry, it will be a D21 obviously...
  5. Hi all, I'm going to shoot a short movie next month and I'm here to ask some advice about a night exterior scene I will have to light. I will be shooting on ARRI D20 with Zeiss Set (this particular scene will be shoot with a variable prime 50-105mm zoom T2.2) The main problem is that scene involves a special FX and we will need all the night of shooting and I won't have even a minute after dark for measuring with the meter or to retouch lights. The scene takes place in a square and a road going trough that square (imagine a wide rectangle and the road starting perpendicular from the longest side of that rectange). A man will be walking out of the square in the middle of the empty street and we will do a dolly shot from front, a little faster than his walk speed, going from a close up to a mid wide shot. we will have about 100meters (about 300feet) of streets+square in frame at the end of the shoot. I can hide some fixtures in the square because there are some quite high buildings that hide it as seen from the street, and the street have arcade with big pillars on both sides. My first idea was to light the "classical" way, with an HMI (maybe 4K sunpar) hidden just behind the corner of a building for a bluish moonlight backlight, and add a tungsten fill in front of the actor near the camera line (warmer or orange for a streetlight look). This is the "safe" version, but I feel there could be some more interesting setups I didn't think of :P Can someone help me out with the problem of metering everything and to come out with a more "creative" setup ? P.S: Forgive my terrible english :)
