          Ehh, I think the Hazer is a bit much. Kinda gives the scene a dull contrast. Personal opinion though, it's probably fine.

                            The dialogue sounds like it was written by an AI that was trained on hard-boiled detective novels.

                                                This is what happens when a gaffer writes a scene.

                                                  Wouldn't it be cool if they did misplaced set object because of previous video?

                                                    This is completely wrong and won't happen. A production wouldn't film anything until a gaffer showed up on set.

                                                      Surely you could this by doing everything with a flat light and then using digital effects post-production?

                                                              So how is it that professional big budget movies end up being so dark and so many people complain about how bad the lighting was?
