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?
Hello there, Im curious if anyone has some recommendations for lighting a backdrop in a studio setting? (I'm still learning a great deal so forgive me if I label something incorrectly!) The set is a 10ft H x 20ft W room in which there are two windows on the far wall. I have looked into renting a backdrop from pacific studios and they have explained to me that this specific rental is a true translight backdrop which needs to be lit from behind. I can see how this would be beneficial as to provide a true luminance for the background. However, my independent research has led me to examples such as the following image album: http://imgur.com/a/pcznW These images seem to show a vinyl backdrop which is lit from the front. My question here is, what methods are suitable for front lit vinyl backdrops and how does that compare to a back lit translight? Would I use the same methods (I.E. Kinos from above) for the translight as the front lit vinyl? Thanks very much for the suggestions! The project I am working on is a short film produced and funded by myself where I can decide how much budget to allocate to various lights etc. Thanks!
Hello! I am working on a project at the moment and need some help deciding on a way to make the background. The location is a set of a crossing at a road and i need it look as though the background is a continuous street/city. The background itself is never going to be in focus but will be in shot from time to time (At least 3 of 4 directions). The street is 11m wide and the centre of the crossing is 20/30m from the background. I have 3 options that i am considering. A. Printed sheet with the image of the background B. Green screen C. Rear Projection I am just trying to figure out which of the 3 options would be the most effective/efficient way to create my continuous street background. Thanks.
