music video in Living room

I am going to shoot a music video in my living room.. it is small 15 x 15 and i am thinking of using some backdrops to cover side walls and back walls so it doesn't look like a living room.. lol!

I am interested in any ideas you guys might have .. I am thinking of using black or red backdrops and maybe some overhead hanging lights of some kind (pagoda?) to give it some kind of effect. The band is a 3 piece (drums/guitar/bass) but there isn't much room...

Any ideas are greatly appreciated.. thanks

James

Turn it into a spaceship, submarine, cave, sewer pipe, etc so there is a reason for the compressed space.

Hope you have a wide angle lens.
