I will be shooting a student film shortly and the director was asking if there was a way to have an actor holding some sort of "glowing orb" or "ball of light" practically instead of trying to do some sort of FX in post. The talent's wardrobe requires him to wear gloves so heat wouldn't be a big issue, but I can't seem to find any info on how to accomplish this in a google search. (the ones I found on google were too dim. He wants a BRIGHT BALL of light)
I was trying to find some LED Balls or use a trick with a bulb in his hand and a hidden wire up his sleeve.

Oh, also, if it doesn't have to matchmove with his hand, have you considered a Pepper's Ghost type effect?
