Hi, I come here a lot for all the great information you guys dish out! But this is my first post, It's one that has been asked before, but I'm looking for a more up to date specific answer, so any help is appreciated. I'm shooting a class room scene, in the classroom there are over head fluro lights already. Our gaffer is coming with kinos, and has said, with no real confidence, "they should work". So I've been told about needing older 40w globes rather than newer 75w, and this: "a standard fluorescent fixture they will be under driven resulting in less light output and incorrect color balance. It should be about the same as running a 4ft tube in 2ft mode in a kino fixture. When under driving the bulbs they will appear more magenta than normal. " Should I be hiring some different type of bulbs for those scenes, rather than using the standard kino blubs? Will I need to balance out the color across all the blubs with gels? Will the light be diminished (I know this may be impossible to answer without actually being on set)? Would love any help or more information before we head out onto set!
Hi Folks: Maybe I posted this in the wrong place. I originally posted this in the visual effects section, and I'm thinking maybe that wasn't right as this isn't a big effect like multilayering or CG animatics. I have a friend who is doing a mockumentary and he wants to use some VHS video that I shot back in the 90's of a 70's party on a single chip consumer VHS camcorder. I want to make it look like VHS from a 70's tube camera and I thought about playing it on a flat screen and shooting it on a tube camera. I did something similar with some digital video and a super 8 camera with Ektachrome and made quasi news film.I thought about doing the same here, but I really want the tube look. I want to see those comet trails on the disco ball.
