My question is regarding the relationship between a light's wattage and colour temperature. For example, if I was shooting indoors with a 100w, 650w and 1000w light would there be a big enough difference in colour temperature between the 100w and 1000w that I'd have to balance them out.
The wattage does not determine color temp. However, household bulbs generally are near 2800K whereas a 1K movie lamp would be 3200K. If you want to get picky, you could put 1/8 or 1/4 CTO or CTS on the 1K to match better, or use photo enlarger bulbs instead of household bulbs (210, 211, 212, 213).
