we also dont have any cstands, silks, flags, really any of the basic grip equipment
This is all basic and inexpensive stuff that you will need for the shoot.
Bouncing the light is not the worst of ideas, but since you want an evening look, I would add some dimmers and some snoots to the package. A fresnel with a chimera would most likely make for a nice soft fill.

Bouncing some light in there for your fill is a good idea. I wouldn't put any Kinos above though, for reasons already mentioned. A nice overhead highlight from one of your fresnels on your actors might look nice though.

anyways, so it seems snoots have been suggested, I have never shot with these, how exactly would you use them...im guessing for wider shots to place pools of light on the various tables?...and yea thats exactly what I was thinking a chimera over a 650 or even a 300 for fill ( ill have to see just how much light loss that redrock is going to cause, were going to shoot with lens all between f1.4-f2.0 so it shouldnt be that awful). then maybe 1ks with the snoots pulled back aways for the wider shots which I will have to learn a bit about as I have never shot with them. sounds like I might not even bother with kinos but they seem like they may make some of the shooting a bit easier. Maybe use the Kinos as keys and flag them off a bit and then fill with the chimeras (sorry im thinking as i type here haha) How does mixing kinos with diffrent sources usually work out is there a clear diffrence and do the 3200k really balance at tungsten I have heard there a little off?
thanks alot for the replys guys

If your already renting gear and have your insurance, a decent grip package can be had for around 100 a day.
