HAIL CAESAR – JOE SILVERMAN’S OFFICE
Looking at Lighting
This scene was shot on location. Although this small room could well have been a stage set the inclusion of some of our night work at the exterior of the same building in combination with the interiors made good scheduling sense.
The night interior was lit using very deliberately chosen practical lamps and augmented with 650 watt Fresnel lamps bouncing of unbleached muslin.
We shot the angles towards the window after dark so that we could have some depth outside, which was created by the placement of a backlit arrow sign.
