I have a bit of a dilemma with a scene I am shooting where the director would like the lighting to change from night to day in one shot.
The shot is in a (small) kitchen on a mid of a man sleeping at a table. We have a 400w HMI, 2k blonde as well as an 800w fresnel and 2 650's. We don't see the window in this frame which does help out a little. I was thinking of simply blacking out the window and then slowly letting the light come through starting at the top and moving down so the daylight hits the top of the ceiling first and then spills down to fill the room, then re creating the night light from outside, inside with one of the smaller lights.
Does this sound like the right idea for the given situation?
We could alternatively shoot when it's dark outside and then fake the daylight.
Any comments would be much appreciated.
