The Office was a location on the second floor I seem to remember. I used 12' x 12' white reflectors to augment the natural daylight here. I remember the daylight changed dramatically over the course of the day. In the morning we had to cut some direct sunlight and by the afternoon there was little natural light reaching into the room.

The scenes on the bus were, I think, just shot under natural light. I may have had a bounce source inside but I don't think so.

The Synagogue was lit using a large 'soft' light which we made from 4 concentric hexagonal shapes each of which carried regular household bulbs spaced at something like 7". The largest spanned over 12' and the smallest about 4'. There was no diffusion and the softness of the light was simply created by the use of so many individual bulb sources. I know there has already been some more detailed information discussed on this set up.

Roger did you make the rig material in aluminium or somewhat light weight.

Yes, that is the rig. It was purpose made in aluminium. The sockets were the heaviest part.

Sir
Regarding the hexagon shape any reasons for that shape instead of circular one..the reason am asking sir in sky fall you arranged the dino lamps in triangle shape ...the reason to mimic the fire shape....that's why am asking sir....

And also the the depth distance between each ring differes decending order from the small cluster of bulbs ...reason sir...

The hexagonal shape was far cheaper to construct and also easier to store as it can be collapsed into a series of straight bars. The reason for the spacing was to create a brighter and whiter 'core' to the overall softness of the light. To help this the outer bulbs were dimmed down a little more than those in the center.

Sir
In one of you discussions in " array of light in true grit night effect you mentioned that u soften the edges of light leaving the centre lights as it is..
Is that same principle or feel applied here sir ..

Not roger. Everything is relative to size and distance.
