Hello Every One!
Thanks in advance for checking out my post. So as the title says, my work is building a video studio. I work at a toy company as their in house video guy (1 man department). This is a brand new position and its quickly evolving. When I started, I was making simple product demo videos for retail sites and social media, now we are building a studio with the goal of producing some of our TV commercials in house. That being said, lighting equipment is not my strongest area of expertise.
Basically my question Is, If you were investing in lights to build a professional studio. Which lights would you buy? I know its a very open ended question, but in doing research, I'm finding that there is plethora of choices and its making me more confused than anything. I know that there isn't a magical configuration of light that will cover you for every need but what would be a good all around set?
Im thinking I want at least one ARRI SkyPanel S60-C (maybe two) What other lights would pair well with it?
Here are some examples of past TVC's we've had produced.
The studio space itself is 30x30. We are most likely going to install a Ceiling rail system if that makes a difference in selection.
Please feel free to ask me any questions.
