  1. Hello everyone, I have a TVC coming up and could use some lighting tips regarding a day interior (living room and kitchen) (pics attached). My question is how (or if) to utilize the natural light from the windows. More specifically how should I decide between the amount of natural light to use vs. using artificial lights. Or whether to even use natural light and just go artificial keep everything controllable. I have a sizable budget so have the freedom to bring in any lights I'd need and to pre-rig. It's an open white walled space so light will spill anywhere and while it needs
  2. Hi all, I'm prepping for a Christmas promo, for which the director wants a "winter evening cosy warm family house glow". We're building a set inside a large hangar, and it will require a roof as the sound is super echoey. There is space outside of the set for lighting and rigging. Talent will be sat on the sofas, two people per sofa. They're playing charades so may be standing up and being quite active. There'll be two cameras cross shooting as we only have the talent for one hour. My initial thoughts are to rig a scaff pole across the top of the set and create a skirted soft b
  3. Hey everyone, Since this is my first post in here, I'll quickly introduce myself: My name is Benedikt Dresen, and I'm a Filmstudent / aspiring Cinematographer from Germany. I started out doing music videos, but now I'm getting more and more into narrative work. Right now I'm in Pre-Production for a 14-minute Shortfilm I'm DoP'ing. The film is set at night, only in one apartment, which will be built on stage. It's about a woman entering her home, where she find a complete stranger waiting for her, who's intentions remain unknown. The whole story unfolds through dialogue, but the blocking wil
  4. Hi again everyone. Not really a question this time but would wanted to show my lighting plan for an upcoming project to get some feedback. I have attached my lighting plan... The talent will be talking to camera and cooking. The background will be dressed with Christmas decorations and what not to celebrate the coming season. I want the lighting to be very soft and cold, to have that winter feel. I'm shooting it all in daytime. I'm using an M18 through the left window (only window our too the left) through a bed sheet which will highlight the background and rim our talent. The other M18 is
  5. Hello, I have a question about how to light a party scene. It takes place at night, mostly in a living room and dining room. People mingling throughout. Think cocktail party vibe, not rave ;) We need to have some flexibility to move around catching people's conversations which will include some improvising. All handheld. We want this to look natural and a little moody. I can use practicals to motivate the light in the scene and then augment it when possible but I think I'll need to add some overall ambient just to bring up the level in the room. Any suggestions on how I can
  6. I need some suggestions on how to light up this scene. (This scene will take place during nighttime) We will have some wide shots and a Over-the -shoulder shot between the receptionist (who will be sitting) and the guest. We want it to be warm and inviting. Maybe add more lamps? Blue gels to fake moonlight? Im sorry I took these during daytime. Wide Reception Area - The main area We have access to some dedo lights,LED,Arri (300,800) and KinoFlos (4 Banks) I really want to thank you in advance. :)
  7. Hello, Would any of you be able to suggest how to get some soft, flattering light on the face of the talent in an establishing shot of a room at night while avoiding spill. The lighting is motivated lamps but most areas will be allowed to fall away to near darkness. I've attached a low-resolution image of how I would like the room to look. Also when it comes to the close-up would any of you advise using a small booklight? Many thanks in advance for any responses. Best regards, Haydn
  8. Hi We're shooting a short film and one scene plays in an apartment. We found this 3rd story apartment and really want to use it, because it is an original 1920s Austrian Apartment. We need a 7 minute dialogue scene in the Apartment and are thinking of how to shoot it. We wanna shoot it four days and have as little of a hassle as possible (lighting continuity errors) I thought about putting lights on the balconies and see thru curtains on the windows, but they're not in front of all of the windows (the balconies). Could I just light it from the inside and somehow place a backli
  9. I shot this teaser back in November or so. It's supposed to be two characters having dinner at night. I've gotten comments that it looks like daytime as opposed to night time, and while I don't completely agree, I'm wondering what I could've done differently to make look better as a night scene. Any ideas, comments, or critiques? Also interested in hearing how I could've made it look better overall, not just more "night-like." http://imgur.com/TKS72yF,YZpXa9Z#0 For a little background info, the guy has kidnapped and drugged the girl (his ex) and is forcing her to have a nice dinner wit
  10. Hey guys, I'm looking for a bit of advice, stock-wise. We're shooting the first ten minutes of our feature film this month and unfortunately my DP is as unfamiliar with film as I am. For outdoor scenes, I'm looking into the KODAK Vision 3 250D. One shot in particular, we transition from the roof of our building to the inside of our apartment. I dug up an article on Fuji's old 250. The tester claimed it would work very well under such a transition. I'm assuming that Kodak can achieve the same result? http://www.fujifilm.com/products/motion_picture/lineup/eterna_vivid250d/demo/ w
  11. Hi, I'm going to shoot a mini-documentary divied in 2 scenes. I think I will use quartz lights: 1x 1K, 2x 650 (Lilliput). 1) the first scene is an interior/day on a irish pub. the shot is a medium close shot and a medium close up (like an interview). I would like to mix a daylight coming from the open door, the practicals light, and a backlight to separate the subject. How can I simulate a daylight with a quartz (I guess the natural light is not enough, the pub is pretty dark)? I'd use the 1k outside and near to the door, gel it with ful CTB (so it's 5500) and a frost to get a soft
  12. Hi everybody To clarify my older post. I am trying to light a room that is 30ft long 16ft wide and 15 ft tall with three 4 bank kino's. The room is wood and will be dark, except for some minimal house lights, 5x 30 watts halogens on the ceiling.Which I can change the bulbs to 150watts if need be. I want to create a slightly underexposed background ambience, where details are visible. But the room is NOT fully lit. Similair to this reference photo: Ignore the color cast please. I want to use the three Kino 4 Banks to light the background only, but I wouldn't mind some of that backg
  13. 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.
