First post, so please forgive the newbie-ness.
What is the most effective way to light a red carpet with a step and repeat? It's a short one, only about 40 ft.

I agree with Bob's post, I would add that it seems like Arri tungsten fresnels are the work horses for these events. Very rarely are they lit with HMI's, most outdoor events take place after sundown. Although occassionally, maybe 20% of the time, they are HMI.
Lights are evenly spaced apart around 8 feet from each other and about 8 - 10 feet from the carpet.
You could probably get away with a bunch of 650's at night.
Just make sure they're high enough that reporters and camera op's don't cast shadows on the talent on the red carpet.
Oh, and use extra sandbags on the units near the paparazzi, lot's of movement over there.
