Re: White balance conundrum...

Thanks all for the great information. The next day we came in and faced wildly different lighting as the afternoon sun was replaced by a thick grey overcast with rain... Which when filtered by the green glass of the office left us with truly colorless skin tones. Using push WB the result was somewhat neutral but had ruddy 3/4 and shadow tones, which wasn't acceptable.The solution came by white balancing off a frame that included some neutral paper and the mahogany cabinetry(scary) which gave us an overall neutral look to the room, but grey skintones, and then augmenting the light on the talent's faces with daylight kino-flos. Worked like a charm.
