Here's one for you:

I'm setting up a direct overhead or "bird's eye view" tracking shot of talent running across a greenscreen. I'll be on a dolly with a boom arm and the camera will be pointing directly down over the runner.

What's the best way to get consistent lighting with minimal shadows on the floor? I'll be hanging lights from the grid and figure I'll also have to space out a few units on the floor to fill in shadows.

Should also try rigging a softbox on the actual boom itself to maintain consistency over the running talent?

Has anyone ever pulled off a shot like this? Any tips/suggestions/pitfalls?

Thanks!
