i've got some ideas about how to rig and mount the lights, my only question is whether to have them both mounted on something - which then turns, or to simply move them independently and match their panning motion. i hope this makes sense.
i've love any advice on how to pull this off.
as far as the story is concerned its about a boy in a trailer park, i can't see xenons being fitting for this environment. these headlights would have to be motivated by something like an old truck or a junky car.
thanks very much.

I've done this a couple of times and it's super simple.
Make a mini T-Bar rig (Inch and 1/8 stand, Barrel Clamp and then a 6 Ft scaff bar) and rig either a couple of 650's or 1k's on the cross bar. Have the Barrel clamp loose and just pan it over your scene. It helps to have these lamps doubled up into a dimmer for more control so as you pan it onto the scene come up on the slider or vice versa.
Hope this helps,
