  1. Hey everyone, new member here :) I have a few night night exterior scenes at a high school football field. Guy/girl sneak onto the field, at at some point ends up proposing to her. We want to use the existing stadium lights "only" look. Of course I'll add some units on the floor to do the talent justice (end of the film/ romantic) but I was wondering if anyone has worked with just existing stadium lights as the primary source? Seems pretty straight forward but was curious about people's experience/ any issues with these types of lights. Attached is a photo not of the actual locatio
  2. Hi all, I'm writing to you from Florence, Italy. I'm going to shoot a feature film in few months. The movie speaks about a small family during WWII. The story is set in the Tuscan mountains, Alpi, and most of the story take place at night. The budget is small but we absolutely want to get the best out of our images. I'm trying to figure out which lights are the best to be "fast and good" in lighting scenes in the forest at night. My crew won't be big, I think only 2 grips and 2 electricians. I was thinking to something like this: http://lightingballoons.com/products/53/umbrella-ball/ o
  3. Hi, I'm looking for some advice on how to light a night time outdoor scene that is located alongside a road. There are some street lamps, but not many. This is a low budget film so looking to keep costs down. In the scene there is a conversation between two characters while walking along a path (some street lamps). There is then a crash scene (so will be able to use one cars headlights). If anyone has any ideas or tips as to the best way to light something like this I would be very grateful. Thanks
  4. I am DPing a music video in the near future that will be shot entirely at night in a forest. The concept is to have an industrial yet gothic feeling rave taking place in the forest with numerous people dancing and milling around. We are going for a very abstract and neon look, reminiscent of "Only God Forgives". Saturated colours are important and it's not important to have a sense of realism with moonlight or anything. I am hoping to light the scenes with Arri M18 1800W HMIs and KinoFlo 4 banks as well as various practicals in the form of industrial fluorescent lights and festoon lights.
  5. Hello everyone, We are planning to shoot a short film which is based a thriller cum horror subject. We are shooting in 5D Mark III, during night. I don't have any idea of lighting the exteriors during night. So, it would be very helpful if anyone from here says what kinda lights and filters i can use for my shoot. Pls do help me out in this. :) Regards, Dhana sekar.
  6. I'm shooting a night time scene with 2 characters talking inside a car. The car is parked, the windows are wet from a recent rain (but it's not raining anymore). I'm looking for tips and advices for enhancing the water drops. Here is a screen grab from tests I've shot on a 5D a couple of days ago in a studio (we're gonna shoot on location for the actual shoot, with a RED One) with the kind of lighting atmosphere I'm planning to do. No one was really in charge of the rain drops for this test, so we just splashed water on the window before shooting. My first question is ab
  7. Hey Everybody, I'm new to the forum, but I was hoping to get some advice from you guys here. I was asked to light a night for day scene for the web series that I have been gaffing on. This isn't the biggest of problems since it is an interior scene. I've lit this place before, and I've only had to deal with making small windows appear to have sunlight coming in. But in this shoot the main character has a conversation in front of 2 glass doors. It is in a garden level business with the glass doors opening onto a patio area in the front. To top it off, the scene is supposed to take place at d
  8. In a film that I will be shooting soon, one of the locations is an upstairs bedroom. The room is fairly small, and very white and we are scheduled to film at night. There is £400 in the budget for cinematography. We already have access to 2x 650w and 1x 300w Fresnel lights and Canon C300. The room has blinds and I want to make it seem like moonlight is coming through them. Could anyone help me figure out the logistics of this? Thank you!
  9. Hello all, 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 creat
  10. Hey Guys, I have just taken a screenshot of 'The Conjuring' , and was wondering if anyone knows what type of light fixture was used to create this type of look? There are other scenes where it's obvious there is 'moonlight' coming from the windows, however this is coming from the ceiling as seen in the reflections on the microphone right of screen. Thanks in advance!
  11. Hi Guys. I'm new to this forum. I'm struggling to light a scene and wondered if you have any suggestions. I have two solutions but neither one seems to be working. Here is the layout of the rooms and action taking place. So the main character walks into a room. Initially the camera sees a darkened room then as the door opens the light sweeps in and spills across the bed revealing the second actor in the bed. He moves towards the chair and sits down before switching on a bedside lamp. Solution 1. Before the door is opened it would be nice to see some of the room in darkn
  12. Hi all. Getting ready to shoot an apartment bedroom scene that is set at night in a dark room with string lights as the only in-room practical ("lights off" otherwise). The scene is also being shot on a bed against a window with heavy dark curtains. So we are shooting straight into a window. Director's approximate reference for general feel/contrast is :14 - :30 in this clip: search youtube for "dead boyfriend morvern collar", i don't want to post outside links here as i don't think that's encouraged ;) Our scene is set up much differently than that clip but that's the "feel" she wants.
  13. Hi, I'm having a little research. Usually cinematographers or directors (ask) to use blue tone when lighting night scenes and moonlights effects. I believe it's a creative choice but some would make it their standard. Personally, I don't want to use blue in lighting night/moonlight scenes unless it is a creative decision. I'm discussing about this with some of my friends. I want a little help in finding out the background behind it. Where did the idea came from? Who and what film started it? Any links and information about this? Thanks.
