I was asked to conceive and shoot a naturalistic yet visually interesting and safety-conscious sequence of a taxi driving at night. After careful research including consulting two ASC DPs, we shot driving plates and then shot the car scenes in a Minneapolis soundstage with a total of 17 lighting instruments, many of which were part of animated lighting gags. We used a wide range of lights from tungsten 5Ks to tiny LED units within the car. Everything was picked with technical analysis and diagrammed carefully in advance, so that only small tweaks had to be made on the shoot day. Once the stage shoot was done, we shot outside on a Minneapolis winter night with the picture car coming to a stop in front of the skyline.
