Hello everyone, I am writing to you because I need help for a job that I will have to do soon. I'll have to illuminate a pink colored limbo with a model that will be framed in full figure. This is a reference that the director sent me: He asked me a beauty soft light with no shadows on the ground... Unfortunately on this job I will be alone and will have little time, so I exclude the possibility of using frames... However, I have a discreet budget to rent skypanels and/or hmi lights, but the rental doesn't have ghost lights. I'm attaching the light setup I planned to use, do you think it can work? The stage is not so big so I can't work from distance. Do you have any advice?
Hi everyone, I am a student at a film school in Milan and I have to write a final dissertation on a topic of my choice. At the moment I am interested in writing a thesis on the use of practical lights, on their merits, defects and on the close relationship that you have to establish with the art department to create a narratively effective light design. My supervisor does not want an overly technical view, but a view that speaks of what artistically involves the use of practicals and how their use evolved over time. Can you tell me if there is some book that talks about the subject exhaustively, or even documentaries, interviews and movies? Thank you in advance!
