One of the biggest surprises people experience when try recording video in low-light scenarios is the discrepancy between what the camera perceives and what your own eyes are telling you. Our eyes and brain do a tremendous amount of work to correct lighting aberrations and let us see things for what they are. Cameras, on the other hand, aren't quite as deft. They need a lot more light than we do to see things properly.
So when you're filming, try to bring in as much indirect light into the scene as possible. Try to do this without using any hard direct lights from sources like overhead recessed lighting and track lighting -- these will cast unsightly shadows that won't do either of you any favors.
