The film will be lit resembling a play like atmosphere. I wanted a ring of light around a dining table. I thought the best way to do this was to extend the C-Stand arm far enough out so the light would beam down creating this effect.
I was told by some people that it would be too much weight and the light/c-stand would be in visible in the wide-shots, which now I can see how it would be!
An alternative that people suggested was to secure a light-weight mirror on the ceiling, aim the light at the mirror. Then would beams down on the table, giving the effect that I want.
