Prometheus Day 2 (part 1)

We did a bit of a "proof of concept" of shooting characters who all lit themselves. Yes, we do put a little bit of fill light in there, but the key and hair lights are all actually attached to costumes. Ramsey Scott set the lights so that they would trace the contours of the faces.
Michael Shattner, Andrew Langton, and Rebecca Kush as Finn, Rhodes, and Haskin.

Andrew Langton.
The very blue character of the LED lights offsets nicely with the warmth of fluorescents. And yes, I did just call fluorescent light "warm". But on this set, they're the only thing to give us skin tones.
