On the 25th of January, we undertook a photography session to test some ideas for lighting and makeup for our upcoming film Night of the Snow Monster. With this shot we were testing out a wide variety of elements that we believe will be important to get a grip on before we enter into principal photography for the film, namely:
- Is the combination of makeup we are assuming we would like to use give our character the look we want her to have?
- Will the makeup hold up under the lights?
- How will our cameras and lenses handle the lighting look and feel we are going to be going for in the film?
- Lighting setups that achieve some of the elements of the overall mise en scène we are looking for in the film.
