:idea:

Well, if you have any type of heat lamp/spotlight, try shining it at a white sheet or paper. Some light will bounce off and make a night glow for the brickfilm.

Or, you could try a flashlight at a paper. I never tried that but it sounds like it would work.

Try using one lamp, and don’t point it directly at your set

It seems counter-intuative, but if you want to make your scene seem darker, you need to add more light.

If you use less light (example: a torch instead of a desklamp) then the scene looks grainy, washed out and flat. This is because the camera can’t get enough light to have a decent image.

If you add more light, then the camera will compensate (or you need to tell the camera to compensate, depending on your camera) and the dark areas will be dark and black, whilst the illuminated areas will be clean and visible.

Watch the film Frankenstein by Nosniborus to see this effect done well.

Try to use a dark background, and reduce the lighting. Move the light source a little bit down.
