Day for night, also known as nuit américaine ("American night"), is the name of a cinematographic technique used to simulate a night scene. Mainly intended to avoid costly (and technically challenging) night filming, outside scenes can instead be shot during the day, using tungsten-balanced rather than daylight-balanced film stock or with special blue filters and also under-exposing the shot (usually in post-production) to create the illusion of darkness or moonlight. Lighting the characters two to three stops more than the background also helps the effect, but doing so requires powerful lights to compete with the sun. Many of the night scenes in the film Jaws, for instance, were done this way, as was the rock climbing sequence in Deliverance. Historically, infrared movie film was used to achieve an equivalent look with black and white film.
