Forum Thread: Tips on filming at night?


So I am planning on shooting a film short out in a forest, at night with loads of dialogue. I will be using a PD170 and am trying to think of ways of lighting up the set, unfortunately a generator will drown out the noise too much, so I am puzzled to think of anything other methods. I am wanting a very bright light to shine through the forest to make it look mystical so feel car headlights would be out of the question. Any ideas??

Have you thought about trying day for night?  Check out the forest/night scenes in Pan's Labyrinth.  They were all shot DFN and are very convincing (minus the few shots that show the sky).
