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 do that? I can bounce off the ceiling but I always have trouble controlling that. Or maybe I can put litemats on the ceiling but would that look to toppy?

Hey I hope all is well. I have an upcoming shoot that involves a party scene and I would like to include strobes and lights that pan and pivot. I've recently been looking at the work of Evan Prosofsky, Stuart Winecoff, and Steve Annis who have been producing some amazing work (in particular party/night scene work). Please find attached the links to the videos I'm referencing and some frame still frame grabs. If you guys could point me towards the kinds of lights I'm looking for that would be great. https://vimeo.com/129187816 - Stuart Winecoff (music video for Astronomyy) https://vimeo.com/95145651 - Steve Annis (music video for Wilkinson- see 1:45) https://vimeo.com/50873621 - Evan Prosofsky (music video for Grizzly Bear)
Hi guys, i'm going to shoot music video, the big part of it is in House, my camera settings should be 800asa 2.0 f 120 fps with 1/240 shutter speed and 800asa 4.0 f 24 fps with 1/48 shutter, it will be handheld. My question is: Can i pre light it for both settings, so i can just change settings of the camera in the middle of shooting from 120fps to 24fps and back? Flickering for me is fine but not so much.
