I’m designing the inside of a set for a TV Show that takes place in the 1950’s in a High School in east coast. The lighting for a TV set is very important and since I need to recreate the vibe of a what a schoolhouse used to look like, I need the right schoolhouse lights to make this work.
Schoolhouse Lighting – Cord Hung
I cam across two different style of the schoolhouse lighting fixture. This one is the cord hung, so I figured this would fit nicely in the walk way of the school. This definitely has a vintage feel to it and will compliment the scene from back in the day
Stem Hung Schoolhouse Light
For this stem hung, I imagined it to be hung throughout the hallways of the school and to wrap around the building in a old school fashion. The set directors were pleased with my input and selection of lights. The best way to get new projects and clients is through referrals and so all your work must be done to the best of my ability to ensure that.
Another important area to focus on will be the exterior lighting of the high school. Now, the cord hung looks great for indoor lighting but fit to well on the outside. I need a mounting option for above the main entrance and so I selected a gooseneck arm to mount the schoolhouse light on.
After setting it up, I looked at my work and noticed that the single light mounted over the entrance door looked kind of strange, so I added another light to compliment it and it turned out nice. My project was done for the most part but they wanted to see how it would look through the camera and not just in person. After shooting some test shots and test videos, they were pleased with the job and my work was done.
