My question is what is the best way to light the inide of a car boot/trunk to be able to film a kidnapping scene.
I am making a short action thriller with a reverse timeline, I want to cut between previous story arc scences and the victime trapped in a car boot.
I have already filmed the trunk shot of the victim looking out of the trunk up at the attacker (ala Pulp fiction) but cannot seem to get the right lighting & distance for a passive 'all tied up and waiting' type shot.
I am using a small panasonic sd600 handycam.
I have tried to use those pop on lights from the hardware shop to add extra lighting as the built in light give me a torch effect, not want I am after.
I want a more natural look
thank you for any sugessions
