Lighting A 3rd Story Apartment for Daylight (or using actual daylight)

Recommended Posts



We are shooting a short film. One of the locations is a 3rd story Apartment, with small balconies on some windows. We really want to use the location because it is an original 1970s Austrian Apartment with interiors.


How would you light it though? Or would you?

Shooting with daylight for three days could give us some continuity issues. Or would you shoot all of the shots featuring windows at once and then everything else seperately?


I thought about putting lights on some of the balconies and putting up see-thru curtains , so they're kinda blown out, but it wouldn't work on all the windows.


Do you guys have any ideas?
