Yesterday both Josh and I started a new project at one of the colleges in Southern California. I thought it would be cool to explore how the day went. So after a quick breakfast burrito we made it to the college with a hr to scout and setup before our first interview would start.
One thing we learned was we are buying a cart for transporting our gear from location to location. Thankfully the college had one we could use.
So we have a couple of Flo lights, both the florescent and LED. After adding key light and hair light we started messing with the room lights to see how we could change the look. Here are a few test with me standing in. Same light setup, just turning on and off the room lights. (Picture Profile is on CineStyle and Ungraded in the test)
So decided with look 3 in this case. Even though we liked the more dramatic looks, for this piece it needed to be bright and cheery. After a few interviews and b-roll we moved on to the next location. Some more interviews and b-roll. As I was setting up for the next set of interviews Josh was to the side getting b-roll.
Then we moved on to another location to get more interviews in a tight confined space but it all worked out. Then we came to the close of our day and doing the last interview in a hallway with large windows. So we had to compromise and soften the sun.
So overall it was a fun and interesting day. As there is so much to learn on every shoot.
