  1. Please let me know if this post is not suitable or has been discussed before. I am trying to build a demo for high key interior lighting and I have found some stills from movies which mostly matches my requirements. However, I am not saying to light up a set/location exactly like them, neither I have the expertise nor the equipments. These are mostly cowboy shots and to light up this wide I need to have many lights to fill the overall space along with lighting the talents. I can rent very few lights and diffusers but I have seen overhead rigs for this type of lighting(may be wrong) which is not possible for me. So my question is : what can be a good way of lighting an interior like this ? I might use sunlight ,let it in with some modification , but shot matching will be difficult due to movement of Sun or weather changes.

  2. Mornin' everyone. That's my first post here at the site, so I'll try to be pretty clear (sorry bout the english, from Brazil in here). The thing is, we'll be shooting a college thesis film (a thriller themed short-film) this next semester. One of the locations is the living room/ kitchen of a country house. I'll get two setup's at it, the first one will be basically natural light with a bit of reflected backlight (we'll shoot with a steadi going round, so I'm trying to avoid any possible physical interference). My doubt would be what set or what kind of equipment I use for the second moment. The character will be entering an eerie aura, he's returning to the house after some weird stuff happens at the outside. What I want to do is a set that get the interior much darker than the first time, but not too much, so it can be clear that he's at daytime. Wanna use a strong marking contrast, but not to defined lines, I'll post a reference image so you guys can understand my point. Just for the knowing, the camera will be a Sony F-55, shooting at 2k, and we got plenty of lighting equipment to choose, so basically there is no strong limitation to what type of light we can use. Well, guess thats it, if you guys could get me any help it would be great! Thanks!! The reference, from 007 Spectre (bad quality, but great lighting) :
