Thanks for the input guys.
I like the chinese lantern idea alot. I should have plenty of time to experiment so i’m going to give that a try.
I do own a reflector – cheap 30 one – but does the job.
And the closet light – one location has a bunch of old metal closets so I’ll definately try that aswell.
The only other idea i had put to me was shooting with the talent lit – obviously with enough depth behind them to the black background that it maintains it’s blackness. Darken the shot in the edit and green screen the swinging light bulb on top – as it swings across the shot return the light levels of that area to the desired level.
How does that sound.
Thanks again for the help everyone.
