Setting A Stop For Searchlight Effect

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


Just wondering some thoughts for a searchlight effect at night on 7219 16mm film. The searchlight is not my key but it will be following a character on the run. I'm thinking of letting it go as much as 4 stops over from my key. Am I being a little too reckless? I want it to feel hot just not burned out white.


Thank you.
