You can rent a kit to light this room for about $100 a day. Less than that if you don't want to do anything fancy.

Post some frame grabs of film scenes you are trying to emulate. That makes it easy to suggest how it was done and what was used.

well i will be using either the sony z1u hdv, or the XL2, im not sure which yet, (sidenote; if anyone could help me decide which is the better camera to get it would be greatly apreciated). im also using a M2 35mm adapter and various nikon lenses.

im having a hard time finding screenshots of what im looking for, the only thing that i could find is norm li's movie "water"
