Liquor Store Robbery Lighting

Recommended Posts

HI all! Wanted to get some advice on lighting a scene in this liquor store. Most of the scene takes place at the counter between a customer and the clerk behind the counter. Also might be shooting a couple of macro shots at 300fps. Bead of sweat on the face, eyes... type of shot. These will be used as speed ramps in post. Director wants to shot this as one long scene so almost a 360 view. Any suggestions on how to approach this?

 

Thanx!!

When using guns in public spaces, call the sheriff's office in advance and tell them when and where you're going to be filming. And also have a "notice of  filming sign" outside that might even include something like "fake guns on set."

As for area lighting, scissor Clips are very useful in 360 situations like what you're describing. Beware of the weight of your fixtures, and safety chain them to something in the ceiling because the grid is not very strong. I'd pull some tiles out for easier access. Try to test the weight load before production.

For the high-speed stuff, because it's macro, you can have your lights and fill cards close to your actor. So that should be super easy. Test the setup beforehand to be sure you'll have enough light for the effect you want.
