Hi Roger,

I was just wondering, could you explain this set up?

Thanks Roger

That's a great BTS photo. Here is a still from the resultant set-up.

Intensity of the bounces vary compare side bounce than two other bounce boards. Roger Where did you put the redheads? May be it's hiding from couch.

There seems to be a couple on the floor behind the sofa and some over head directed at the muslin. I think this was a location shot, probably a private apartment in London.

On page over he talked about lighting Skyfall with multiple bounces...

"I have the muslin made up in 4' floppy sleeves that fit over standard 4' x 4' frames. I find having multiples of these is a very flexible way of working. When working in close to an actor I generally want to curve my bounce source around the subject so a single 8' x 12' frame can be too restricting.

The multiple bounce sources curve around and create an even softer effect. All the lamps are on dimmers and those at the sides are dimmed down further than those at the center of the bounce."

That was a set and the lamps, which were Tweenies, were on the floor. The light from the bounce source seems very bright in the still from the set but, as you can see from the image from the film, they were really quite minimal compared to the practical lamps.
