Hi Roger, I'm shooting a night scene in an office with a similar setup to this scene from Hail, Caesar! I'm intrigued to know how much of this setup was lit by that one practical on the desk and what you may or may not do to enhance this effect with other sources and bounce etc?

Thanks

Just to mention there is a lighting diagram and some infos Roger and James shared in the Looking at Lighting section. He did mention a bounce of muslin from pipe rigged tweenies on the desk to extend the practical.

Yes, I think I have explained this scene already.
