HAIL CAESAR – IMPERIAL GARDENS
Looking at Lighting
The bar area in this scene was shot on location and this is depicted in this lighting plan.
The small dining room was a set and very specifically designed to reflect the Coen Brothers’ storyboards. This small set was lit by the hanging practical lamp, which appears in shot plus a ‘gag’ bulb that was rigged behind it. The fish tank was lit with fluorescent tubes and the red screens were backlit using 650 lamps.
