The goal is to retain the look of the available incandescent lighting - I like its warm feel. I want the image to look true of the scene without introducing flash.

The Color Temperature of the pubs lighting will be somewhere between 2700Kelvin and 2900Kelvin.

How will this scene likely behave with daylight balanced film?

Is there anything I can do (filters?) to retain the integrity of the scene using daylight-balanced film without massive colour casts?

A Full CTB (color temperature blue) will convert 3200 Kelvin to 5600 Kelvin. Tiffen states their 80A & 80B blue lens filters result in a 2 stop light loss. Can you live with the light loss?

Check with a Motion Picture Rental House for addition info and filter rentals. Working with tungsten light is a lot harder than using flash.

Be sure to let us know how this turns out.
