Color rendering in 500T stock

Recommended Posts

I'm currently preparing a shooting on super16mm with both Kodak Vision3 7207 250D and Kodak Vision3 7219 500T.
There will be a scene in some sort of laboratory with fluorescent lamps visible on the shot (like the image attached). I would like to keep the color of these lamps a little bit bluish/turquoise and mix it with another source with redish light (coming from a machine like device). The colors I would like to achieve are something like the reference attached.
The fluorescent lamps come both in 4000K and 6500K. Does this mean that if I'm shooting with the 500T stock (balanced for 3200K) and if I use the 6500K lamp without any filter, the light from the lamp will render bluish? And a red gel will be enough in the other light source?

Put the red gel on a tungsten lamp.

And before the shot, shoot a gray card or gray scale under a tungsten lamp so that the person doing the transfer knows that the ceiling light is supposed to be blue.
