Lighting with (fluorescent) light from above (Toplight).
Leo Panthera posted a topic in LightingHey Guys! I'm going to shoot a shortfilm set in a dry-cleaner's in a bit and am currently looking for inspirational films/scenes that use fluorescent top lighting as key, since i would like to go with fluorescent tubes that are already part of the location as practicals. I'm currently looking into "The girl with the dragon tattoo"; "Arrival"; "Fight Club"; "Fallen Angels" etc. to learn how to create dramatic/thrilling scenes through the use of neon/fluorescent light from above. (The ceiling of the dry-cleaner's is going to be pretty low, so I don't think I'll be able to hang Chimera Quartz's of any size, my initial idea was going with diffused Kinos or maybe pancakes if there is enough budget for it. I also would be happy about more ideas of Lights to use. I also thought about bouncing light into ultrabounce/musslin/silk attached to the ceiling, I'm not really sure if it's the right characteristic though, so I need to test this in the next few weeks) So if you have a few other films on your mind that utilize remarkable top lighting, and of course your own tips/experience regarding working with top-light, I would be glad if you could share them with me! I'm also happy about every bit of behind the scenes material of films using this type of lighting! Cheers!
Amit Dubey posted a topic in In Production / Behind the ScenesWe recently finished the filming of my first feature "Mind Cage", and it was filmed in Cambodia. We used GH4 and Phantom 3 for the drone shot. We are currently in post-production. Please check out the teaser and the journey of the film so far. http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/mind-cage/ Any support/feedback or comments will be helpful. Thanks a lot.
Mornin' everyone. That's my first post here at the site, so I'll try to be pretty clear (sorry bout the english, from Brazil in here). The thing is, we'll be shooting a college thesis film (a thriller themed short-film) this next semester. One of the locations is the living room/ kitchen of a country house. I'll get two setup's at it, the first one will be basically natural light with a bit of reflected backlight (we'll shoot with a steadi going round, so I'm trying to avoid any possible physical interference). My doubt would be what set or what kind of equipment I use for the second moment. The character will be entering an eerie aura, he's returning to the house after some weird stuff happens at the outside. What I want to do is a set that get the interior much darker than the first time, but not too much, so it can be clear that he's at daytime. Wanna use a strong marking contrast, but not to defined lines, I'll post a reference image so you guys can understand my point. Just for the knowing, the camera will be a Sony F-55, shooting at 2k, and we got plenty of lighting equipment to choose, so basically there is no strong limitation to what type of light we can use. Well, guess thats it, if you guys could get me any help it would be great! Thanks!! The reference, from 007 Spectre (bad quality, but great lighting) :
Hello everyone, We are planning to shoot a short film which is based a thriller cum horror subject. We are shooting in 5D Mark III, during night. I don't have any idea of lighting the exteriors during night. So, it would be very helpful if anyone from here says what kinda lights and filters i can use for my shoot. Pls do help me out in this. :) Regards, Dhana sekar.
Deep Sleep - Short Film (We need your help!)
Will Jacobs posted a topic in Off-TopicLink: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/deep-sleep-short-film/x/268202 Deep Sleep is a short film about a self-loathing teen, Derek Harper, who's sick of his severe idiopathic hypersomnia (sleep addiction). He lives in a generic apartment, and works at a late-night cafe for free coffee to keep his life somewhat moving. His one and only friend Hay Tyler, helps him find the answers to his condition. You're important because you guys are the most vital part of the film. You determine whether this film will be good or bad. Your funding determines how much creative freedom we have, and how close we can tell this story to its envisioning. You are even more important because you're the key to the film's success. Not only will you help me make a beautiful film, you will get me further to my dream. Why Is It Important To Me? 'Deep Sleep' is an important project to me not only because its the most biggest challenging project I've tackled so far, but because it can be a film that can allow me to prove my talent and potential as a filmmaker. When I went and saw 'Inception', I had no idea what it was about really, and went into the theater unexpected. As the film finished, and I walked out of the theater, a feeling came over me that inspires me everyday. I was completely blown away. I want to create that same feeling in everyone of my films. Thanks for taking the time to read this, it is deeply appreciated. Please take a second or so and spread the word around about this project. It needs it! Thanks again, Will Jacobs Actor, Director, Writer, and Producer of 'Deep Sleep'
