  1. As always thank to anyone in advance who reads this and your generosity with sharing your opinions and experience. I am in the process of prepping for a particular shoot, one of which that I do not have any experience in the type of shooting, although I'm eager to learn. Basically, the job requires me to 1 shot of a small rodent being shipped in from abroad on a closed set in a studio. We are to film it inside a box with 30cm width and 100cm length; interior walls fully blacked out, and the box is filled with sand and a few elements of grass. In this box it will be able to move arou
  2. Hello everyone, I've been involved in video production for a while now and am now keen to learn more in depth about lighting and getting more experience in the field. Reading about meters, I understand how helpful they are in determining contrast ratios and light levels on interiors and locations, and are especially beneficial when shooting film (I'm getting into shooting 35mm stills lately). My max budget is around £200-400. So far my eyes are on the Sekonic L308X for its footcandle/lux readings, easy-to-find battery and size. However, the things holding me back are: Lack o
  3. Hi, We are two technicians working in the film industry in France (a grip guy and a gaffer) and we just discovered this very interesting forum. We particularly noticed that gaffers and cinematographers were asking questions about light output and what aperture is obtained at a certain distance. It happens that with the help of two IT engineers we developed an iOS app responding to this question about 2 years ago. First and for all, we’re not going to post messages everywhere on this forum to sell our app nor are we going to pollute your threads to gain in visibility. We just think s
  4. Hi All! As a student, each projects means a way to stretch myself further. If I'm not trying something new (or a little bit scared) on a project then I feel like I'm not taking steps forward. Lately I've been doing pretty in-depth floor plans and 2D pre-vis, and it has been working wonders for every project. However, I'm still working to get exactly what I want in my head to paper, so that on set my images are not a surprise. Is there a way I can tell how many foot-candles a certain light will output? I'm wanting to essentially know exactly how powerful a light I'll need to expos
  5. Hey everybody, My name is Mike, I am an Electric and I will be gaffing for a short film. I have to recreate late afternoon light to shine through a window. My question is do I have a strong enough light source? My main light source is an Arri Tungsten 5k. The DP wants it about 20 or so feet away from the window. We are on the second story so the light will be on a stand about 16 feet high. The DP wants afternoon light (4300k) to shine through the bathroom window. So I will gel the 5k on a 4x4 frame with 1/2 CTB (4600K). He also wants some New Hampshire Frost on it. Us
  6. Greetings all, I'm excited to be a part of a community so generous with it's knowledge. I'm really trying to wrap my brain around the Sekonic L-758cine light meter and it's advance capabilities. This might well be a very tremendous question... Footcandles, Lux, Foot Lambert, and cd/m². I'm hoping to understand in what situations it'd be best to use these light measuring features. Are these just a preference? Where and why would you use them? Thank you sincerely for your time.
