Has any one ever lit a car for sunset after its already dark on location? There are a few ways I can think of with large set ups or in a studio but in this case im looking for more of an on the go shoot with my largest light being a 1.2 my concern is that i want to avoid the light looking like a street light . I need to make sure there is enough ambient daylight. any thoughts would be much appreciated. thanks
Hi there! Last night I watched "Kiss of the Spiderwoman", in which there are beautiful, dream-like sequences where it appears the crew was filming in daytime (there are clearly shots of the sun), but the overall effect resembles super bright moonlight due to their filming in black and white. At least I believe they are filming in black and white - in one scene it changes to colour halfway through, so perhaps they were using colour film with a filter of some kind? I am a student, so I'm not sure of all the techniques available to get the effect. I have attached some pictures so you can see what I mean. Sorry they're so LQ! Anyways, I found this effect beautiful, so I'm wondering if any of you know how I would emulate it? What film stock to use, what lighting set up, settings on the camera... anything helps! Thanks! P.S. The cinematographer for this film was Rodolfo Sanchez, in case any of you are familiar with his work!
Hello there everyone, Well i'm shooting my final short film at 3rd year in film school, the script takes place in a night interior house, my problem is that due to the shooting script in a few shots we see the window. We have to shoot in that hours (daylight) because the film school requires it. I asked one of my teachers and he told me that one easy solution could be to make kind of dark boxes in the windows for putting the lightning equipment and not allowing to pass the sunlight, then put Hampshire Frost filter in the windows for defocus the light and use little lights that seems to come from the street. It seems to be a good idea but do you have any others?, I have time until the shooting day and I want to explore all the posibilities. The shooting will be 10 hours and we have 8 Ronin shots, the camera is the BMCC 4K with one and only Samyang XEEN 20mm, I want an f/4.0 and my gaffer will be prelightning the other two rooms in wich the action happens. Thanx!! -Alex
