  1. I'll build a dimmer box today and see how it works. Thanks for the helpful advice. I'll post some photos from the set and let you know how it went.

  3. I'm lighting a kitchen scene in a few days and was wondering how I can get a florescent light fixture to flicker? I already know that fluorescent lighting flickers super fast that the human eye can't see but I need to create a effect. Is there some sort of adapter I can buy or wire the fixture in a certain way? I looked online but can't seem to find a suitable solution. Also, it doesn't have to be fluorescent , a incandescent light bulb may work too but fluorescent lighting looks a lot cooler. Thanks.
  4. How can I create a light flicker effect? Hmmm.

  5. Amazing! Wish I had the money to shoot on film... One day! =) KEEP IT REEL!!!
  6. Here's some pictures of the room http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4072/4664452240_42fbe77fba_m.jpg http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4010/4664452514_3d66cda485_m.jpg http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4046/4664452918_92b179ea7a_m.jpg I'm not exactly sure on the dimensions but it's fairly small. We're shooting on HDV, or a Canon xh a1
  7. I will be lighting a motel room for a short film. The room in the script is described as dingy but takes place in the day. I think I'm gonna go with a more film noir look because later on in the script someone gets shot in the room so I wanna keep the intensity of the room constant. Add to the drama. These are the following lights i have to work with. 2X 2k Fresnel 2X Scoops 1X Baby Fresnel and i can also get some lights at the hardware store and light with them. Any suggestions? There is a window in the room but im planning to keep the blinds pretty closed to keep the room dark. Thanks.
