Cinema lighting, as most professionals will agree, is one of the most exacting yet subjective aspects of film/video in movies, TV and commercial advertising. Nothing comes easy with lighting - a video shoot for a simple living room scene may have 10 or more lights. These lights may be of different types (e.g. LED, incandescent) and from different brands, with different brightness levels and subtle differences in color.

Lighting Director-Jack Ho
A professional lighting director Jack Ho who works at TV station told us, he used to setup the shooting scene with incandescent lights, because it provides stable light and no flicker issues. Besides, incandescent light has slightly red makes people looks energetic. However, wasting a lot of energy, shorter lifespan and keep increasing the working environment hot is facing cost issue. The new LED light solved the energy and cost problem, but on the same time leads to another challenge the invisible flicker and inconsistent light color.
The director may want a warm color environment and vary the brightness with the different lights as they placed into position. There may be additional ambient light from the windows or light reflecting off the white walls that may also affect the environment. In short, it's a lot to tackle, especially when you arrive on site and your setup window is limited in time, let alone all the other activities going on at the same time; actor prep, props, makeup, all needing to be synchronized before the actual commencement of shooting.
The pressure is on, people are waiting and counting on you to "nail it" with the lighting.
