Roger both shot only just ceiling fixture or some lighting involved.the quality of the light superb. How much ceiling fixture close to the actress for both shots. What kind of housing that was finally diffused?

Yes, that was just the ceiling fixtures and, maybe, a 4' x 4' piece of poly to catch some light in LUV's eyes. We used something like 55 Arri S60 Skypanels to fill each individual bay of the ceiling, which was specifically designed around that lamp's dimensions. Each fixture was about 9" above a glass that had some light diffusion on it. As you can see in the first wide shot, the Skypanels came on in a sequence that moved as a soft band of light as the characters entered the room. I wanted the feeling that the lighting was on a motion sensor, which was similar to the scenes immediately previous to this one and also something we did in K's Apartment. When the characters were in their final position, the lights were always brighter above the characters than they were to each side.
