TV Lighting | How to Film Day Interiors

published on July 20, 2020

Hey it's V from the a-team and I don't know if you've noticed but we've changed your format around a little so now we are doing episodes based on specific scenes today's scene happens inside of like a network comedy maybe a teen coming-of-age kind of thing let's take a

Look and here with Shaunie Brian who is a director of photography here in Los Angeles she films a lot of music videos specifically also focusing on a lot of lighting combining different color temperatures and also lighting gags

Shaunie what is this like kind of scene that we're going for then the scene that we're going for for this is just kind of a typical bedroom scene but I wanted to do a little more dynamic stuff like adding in the color accent because

You'll get different color temperatures and different environments also incorporating like a lighting Q into it so the first thing that you're kind of contending with here in the wide shot is the Sun and you really can't get rid of

That and this scene and you don't want to you kind of want to use it to your advantage right yeah to do that it is a daylight scene so once you had a little bit of natural light coming through the window

It wasn't hitting your actors it was kind of just ambient you added another light that was punching through the window what was that that was just a 300 D and we wanted to use it to add a little bit more control so that would be

An accent light that would kind of Rim the actors add a little bit more of an accent on the bed just give a little more consistency throughout the window and then you introduced this top light I wanted to do something that was more of

A lighting cue so we have one of the actresses enter the scene and when she does she turns on the light it's kind of a practical it's not on camera but it is the light in the room yeah and how did you set that up so I set that up using a

Minimax fan which is basically like a menace arm but it's containing one so with the minimax you would arm out the 300d with the mini light dome to just to provide some diffusion and keep the actors from that part

It's also important to use a light that's bright enough to really counteract the Sun in the background and then you actually switched it up a little bit and introduced a tungsten color temperature into the scene we had

A bathroom right off frame and I thought that would be a great opportunity to add like a different color temperature to make the scene a little bit more dynamic and you have a lot of play with that try it see that color temperature adjustable

Light because you can take it all the way to twenty nine hundred degrees Kelvin and make it super super warm and then punching in for the close-up did you change any lighting at all I actually didn't change much of the

Lighting um I also find like if you're working on a time crunch it's easier to kind of set the lighting throughout the room and let it be customizable and tools like dimming if possible if you're working with LEDs that have that

Capability and that way you can move and you can get your coverage really awesome so let's take a look at that whole scene all put together all right so if you want to be like

Shawnee Shawnee has some tips for you a few tips for the scenes don't be afraid to make color attempts because backing create realistic situation another one is utilize the lighting and impractical location to your advantage

And work with it instead of against it and then the last thing would probably be that you can change lighting in the middle of the scene while you're recording you can use your actors as ways to expect the scene and make it

More dynamic yeah what I like about this location specifically is that you probably have a house with a room that you can shoot in and get this exact look but as far as locations go our common question this week is what is the

Coolest location or your favorite location that you've shot at in the past Johnny what's yours there was a giant abandoned church that was actually previously Department of Water and Power I kind of want to go there yeah no lie
