Practical vs Photoflood

(inexpensive approaches preferred) I'm coming to this discussion late, so let me make sure I'm addressing the right thing: you're looking for "sunlight" solutions, the cheaper the better, right? Okay, to regress: you asked how the "big boys" do it... they primarily use Kino Flo's (with daylight tubes) for soft light, and HMI's for hard light. Kino Flo's are, of course, fluorescent fixtures with special lamps that are extremely accurate in color rendition, and you can get those lamps in either tungsten or daylight colors. HMI's are a unique light source, they're basically like a crossbreed between a fluorescent and a tungsten hard light.

HMI's are, of course expensive! So are Kino Flo's. So let's ignore those. The cheapest solution is to use a mirror and redirect the natural sunlight. But those probably aren't the solution you're looking for -- they require a direct line-of-sight to the sun, which many times won't be practical.

Bronson (film)

He cannot sing, he cannot act, and so he shows the calling he found: the film cuts to a naked Bronson fighting several prison guards in a cage. The film then presents several assorted points from his life, intercut with Bronson on stage before an audience in several stages of performance make-up, and speaking directly to camera while seemingly behind bars. Michael Peterson is shown as a baby, and then as a young boy involved in fights with pupils and a teacher at school using a desk as a weapon.

He had his first job at a chip shop, where he committed his first crime, stealing money from the cash register and giving some of the money and a kiss to a young woman who was working there. He then goes on to marry the woman, Irene, and has a baby with her. Peterson goes to jail after robbing a post office and getting away with a small amount of cash. Kenneth Anger.

Creative Ways to Build a Climax: An Analysis of the Suspense & Timing of 'Drive' Great storytelling isn't just about giving information to your audience.

It's also about when and how you give it to them. Human beings are natural storytellers, but that doesn't mean that your great aunt Millie or Dave from Accounting can tell a story like the greatest literary and cinematic minds in history. That's because telling stories is a lot like -- dancing. You've gotta know when to drop it low, baby! In other, less confusing words, you have to know how to build tension, add suspense, as well as flavor -- a little something special, and then know when, where, and how to drop the climax bomb. Drama is anticipation mingled with uncertainty. So, how do you do that? And now, hear what Foley has to say about the creative ways Refn, as well as Sergio Leone, Frank Darabont, and others dispense information to their audiences in a way that doesn't just inform, but also adds tension, anticipation, and uncertainty.

There are so many ways to craft a great denouement for a scene. 'Drive' Film Analysis - Audience Information. Drive (2011) - The Quadrant System.
