Wetting down a roof will reduce the heating to the space underneath. Could you schedule your shoot for early morning or in the evening, when you could simply use fans to bring in cooler air? Using a faster film will have a bit more grain, but could reduce lighting requirements considerably. Are there large air-conditioned spaces that could also meet your needs?
This production is more of a live stand-up variety with multiple cameras and it's being shot in BetaCam SP. I am toying with shooting one of the performers in Super-8. The location is solid, except for the potential of it being too hot, most everything else is exactly what is wanted.
Thanks for the info on the roof.
Thanks Hal for the link on Aggreko. I remember getting literature from them years ago but I didn't recall they did cooling as well.
