Now it's time to talk about how we handled lighting our film set. The first article is a brief intro to the Lighting section of our guide, including a list of gear we had and where we got it from. We also make a point of that we got most of the gear free, either because we were blessed by a natural disaster, or because we just dared to ask.
The second article details how we built our soft and powerful toplight. I recommend that article to all Amateurs on the DIY scene, as everybody can get their hands on bulbs and graden plant cover.

Article 2: Lighting: Making a Soft and Powerful Top Light

This marks the end of our elevator set guide!
We've posted a wrap up on our blog and an index where we divided the different articles under CONCEPT -WOODWORK - SET DRESSING - LIGHTING, which we hope will make browsing of the guide easier.
Feel free to share this guide with people who might find this stuff useful!
Here's the wrap up:
Wrapping It Up – An Epilogue
Index to Making Love Between Storeys: The Elevator Set
According to statistics we're currently getting 30 - 50 readers per article we upload, which is awesome, but I'm sure there's more people who would find this information useful. So please share with us if you have any suggestions on how to improve and distribute this guide. I'll probably start a separate topic regarding this next week, but feel free to comment and blast away with critique/suggestions here also.
Oh yeah - if you think we should continue writing similar posts on other aspects of our production like Casting, Shooting, Scriptwriting and/or Premiere Organising, you can do one of the following (or all if you'd like).
