    i’m using this video set up as a reference for lighting a night interior for a short film, where i create a blueish moonlight coming from the window behind the lady, with a bit of smoke, luv that hazy feeling- What would shane do if this was night interior? thanks, shane

      Hi Malcolm,

      Shane would first read the script and get inside the emotion of the characters. Then is this a happy scene or a sad one, is this spooky or practically lit? These are a couple of my first questions. Then I would move forward. If it is a hazy back light feel coming through the windows to silhouette your talent, then maybe adding a practical in the room that he or she walks into or she is sitting at a table like Eli was in the Day interiors and I would motivate a light with a practical coming from the right side of camera or left, whatever works for your location restrictions in space.

    Hi Shane,

    Really loved this tutorial so helpful! How much time do you usually have to setup on professional film sets? Low-No Budget film sets seems like there is low-no time to set up lights! Also, I’m really interested in purchasing the lights that you where using in this series – I’ve tried to follow the link but the link seems to be broken.

    Thanks,
    Glen.

    HQL/HQI forbidden in Europe…

    Hi Shane,

    of course I have seen HQL lights in big warehouses or industry buildings before – but always judged them as “too bad for shooting”.

    I see that with different eyes now – especially as a “full power” HMI replacement (DIY).

    While investigating here in germany where to get “sports fixtures” I found that since beginning of 2017 any HQL/HQI (Metal Halide Lights) sales are forbidden (at least for private use?) in Europe.
    EU government wants to lower energy consumption, so you simply cant buy these lights/bulbs no more (except some grey markets), and – too sad – I found LED lights (even the 200W COB versions) not strong enough to replace a big outdoor light.

    I was always wondering why a HMI fixture (not the ballast) is so expensive. OK – its getting damn hot and runs high voltage , so its a great approach to use these sports lights (of course lower CRI due to Metal Halide) as a DIY approach.

    Anyway , cant get them here , so have to find some budget HMI alternatives for blasting shafts of light …

    Uli
