I am preparing to shoot a short film, on the HVX200 w/ Letus adapter. The story is very simple, taking place mostly on and around a tractor that has died in a field. Any tips for manipulating/controlling light on a small budget? I read Christopher Probst's article on the ASC site about using reflectors that was very informative. The tractor sits facing slightly south west. I plan to use the sun as a key (with silk/diffusion where necessary depending on the intensity that day) and hoping to using shiny boards as rim lights for the Farmer and his son (the only two actors). Hoping to get a slightly golden afternoon feel. Thought about getting a small HMI for CUs but not sure if it's in the budget. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions?

All exterior short, looking for natural light look
