I have some questions about the sets. When you paint them, do you match what you believe to be the studio colors, or do you adjust at all to how they looked on TV? And when filming, does lighting account for any discrepancies using modern cameras, or is there any color correction in post to make it look a little more like the film cameras rendered it?
As far as the studio tour, people seeing it in person, I know that you guys have made allowances to make it more immersive than if it were purely a film set (fourth walls, sounds, etc.), but I’m most curious about the lighting. Do you light it moodily for the tours, or do you just leave the overhead fluorescents on? I know that sets are often much brighter in person depending on the lenses/film stock being used, so in a way, a very brightly lit set might be a little accurate to the era, but might detract from the feeling of being on the Enterprise a little. I’ve read the stories of people reacting to the sets, so I know that it’s effective regardless, but this was something I was really curious about.
As an aside, they make fluorescents-tube-style LED replacement bulbs nowadays. So, it might be interesting if you ever change the lighting over to ones that have a warmer color temperature. Or heck, maybe they’ll have ones to change color hue as well.
