A fantastic stream today. People were shooting out questions that I had myself faster than I could type!
A thought occurred to me though. As we delved into shooting for dark scenes, the two movies that really jumped out at me were 28 Days Later and Alien.
In 28 days later, the act where the main protagonist is breaking into the manor and hunting the soldiers, had me at the edge of my seat, and I think that a lot of that was due in no small part to well used and timed lighting effects.
Again, I think that the last 40 minutes or so of the first Alien movie had a strikingly similar effect for the same reason, but to a larger degree.
