    Car light dilemma

    Hello
    I'm new here, and I'm hoping someone can help me with a light dilemma.

    I am working on a 15 minute short that is based on a dialog exchange between two individuals; Passenger and Driver. I have built rigs to catch the scenes on either the driver or passengers side mirrors. At this angle I can get both parties on screen at the same time. Now, the dilemma comes to lighting. I was wondering if anyone had any good wireless lighting ideas for filming in a moving car?

    Thanks,
    Gregg

    First question, Does the car have to be moving? or can you film it on a green screen?

    Next, does it need to be wireless, or can you get a AC/DC converter for the cigarette outlet, and put a night through the sunroof?

    First off thanks for the reply.

    I prefer not green screening car scenes. For some reason it always looks fake when people green screen the extrerior shots of a moving car.

    We are using an old car, without a sunroof. I didn't think about a AC/DC converter for the cigarette outlet. I should see if the cigarette outlet works.

    You can also use the car interior light to get power.
