[Shutters on a light can work depending on the shot and the technician operating them.] Tim Healy
I totally agree Tim. An 'Artist' can get more for less.. no doubt.
I (believe) this thread started with a Boat in a Tossing Sea - a Storm... Rain, Lightning, Thunder. ... In that shooting environment 'sound' is not as much an issue for the DP with regard to his/her Lighting Effects because the 'Actual Physical Effects' drown out any Lighting Dept. noise.. so in that environment.. I would push for a Plunger or two... also, there is no 'learning curve' ... just push the Plunger and get what you want.. believe me.. a Plunger 'electrifies' the creative juices of the crew.. it does! Hearing that indescribable sound of the 'arc' really gets people 'juiced'...!
