HAIL CAESAR – DOCKSIDE BAR
Looking at Lighting
This scene was also based on the kind of dance numbers that were common in the 1950’s. The set was designed and built to facilitate the choreography of the dance. To give the whole a slightly more dynamic look whilst allowing for some shaping of the light, I suggested that the lighting should vary from section to section. During rehearsals we broke the dance into sections and each section into specific shots. From a ground plan, each of these sections and shots took on their own lighting schematic.
