Hey everybody! While shooting is still a ways off, I like to be prepared. This would be my first movie where I will have full control of the setting (meaning the entire rooms will be fake on a set). I'm hoping some of you here can help me out. The movie i'm working on takes place in dungeon-type rooms that measure maybe about 25 x 25 feet (and smaller/slimmer for corridors).
Any low cost yet effective lights (and stands for them to fit on) you could recommend for properly lighting such areas. I feel confident enough with other areas of making the movie, but lighting has always been the tricky spot of mine and i'm trying to improve it and I want the lighting for this project to look right (of course a lot of tests will be shot to get it right before even attempting to shoot the real thing, only a fool would try otherwise ).
I'll be using what cameras I have access to at this point, which are 2 Canon HV10's. And I know these things need a lot of bright light.
The thing is I would like to use some color themes for the movie, specifically a 'cold' blue. Any color gels or similar you could recommend to use on the lights?
Another thing i'm wondering about is what is the best type of lens to help achieve 'monster vision', where the camera would act as the monster's vision, with arms attached to a rig of some kind to reach out and 'attack'. I'd like something a bit distorted, something that makes the monsters appear sort of blind or poor vision -- perhaps a fisheye lens but what type?
Thanks, and a mock-up of one of the monsters is attached below, if that helps in any way.
EDIT: I know there's some technical stuff in this post, but also on the art side of things. I felt it would fit better here than the equipment section, sorry if it doesn't belong here though. Please move it if it needs to be.
