We referenced the colour palette of urban, sodium lighting in our interview setups, using in-vision fluorescent tubes to create a unique setup. Elsewhere, we ran action in the reflection of vehicle windows and bodywork to give a sense of the textures and abstract visuals that a car journey sometimes yields.
