I came across this vid on YouTube and was wondering what type of softbox / rig they're using here. What type of wattage would that thing need to be that bright?

In another part of the video, they show the lens they're using (if that helps). I'm pretty sure it's an Angenieux Optimo (T2.8) mounted on a 435.

Yeah, looks like a Briese for sure. AFAIK the Broncolor ripoffs are for flashes only. As for wattage that's really hard to judge from that picture. Without know the distance, f-stop and ISO of the camera used for that picture I'm pretty clueless.

Cheers, Dave

It's not that video, but I did something similar a few years ago. Blonde girl, in a white fur coat on a white background with frontal lighting. Have a look here I was using a home made light *box* that had 12 x 150w Metal-hallux lamps in it. Same idea, just more crude ! )

(By the way, this clip was pre those IPOD silhouette spots.)

The Light is called a briese light and it looks like they were using a 2.5k HMI i would not e suprised if they had some other sources filling in the white wall aswell. hope this helped
