Male 1: When you're shooting for multiple cameras, lighting becomes a bit of a challenge because you have to really accommodate a couple of goals. One, the light has to look good from pretty much each direction. So to pull this off, we've been trying different styles of lighting. We've already used the practical lights that were installed here. So we're using what was in the environment itself. And they're stage lights because we're on a stage. This gave us some cool things, like Christmas tree lights overhead, and we have some soft twinkling lights and then we had to work with what was around. We made sure that the windows were blocked off, but to put some backlight behind the subject, we've got some LEDs, shooting upwards.
