Hi! I'm studying cinematography in Spain and I'm gonna be DoP in a school short film. I have to design a lighting for a dance sequence with a couple dancing slowly together. It's gonna be shot in studio, we have multiple tungsten about 1KW, 2KW, also Velvet light panels, fresnel HMI 1KW, 2KW. One requirement is that it must be a theatrical light. I have thought about hanging lights on the characters, adding smoke, and coloring the backgrounds with jellies. There is also the possibility of getting light through a false window. I wold like to incorporate neon lights, led strips, or something like that in the background. Do you have any purpose to design the lighting for that? Thanks in advance!
I am planning to shoot a choreographed dance scene on a rooftop and am seeking any tips for shooting in an uncontrolled environment with a standard Canon 5D or 7D. Should i avoid harsh lighting and shoot after sunrise or before sunset? What budget lights or gels would assist? Also with dynamic shots can i still achieve nice sweeping pans left-right following the dancer without a steady cam apparatus? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
