Hello Roger,

I'll be shooting a dinner scene between a family for an upcoming short film, and I was using the diner scene from Prisoners as a reference example for lighting. The room is probably only 18 feet long by 12 feet wide, with a small chandelier above the table.

I'm hoping to use china balls in a similar fashion to how you employed them in that diner scene. Perhaps less, and perhaps skirted as well to control the spill. All on dimmers.

I was curious, how many lanterns did you hang in that scene exactly? What was the wattage of each? I'm assuming you shot at 3200K?
