Hello everybody. I have to shoot this sitcom pilot but I have some problems staying in the budget for the lighting, grip equipment. The episode will be shot in this studio about 36'*69'*12'. We need to shoot with a few brakes and we won't have time to change the lights shot to shot. I was thinking about this setup but It can't fit the budget

8 Chimeras medium size with 1000w globes inside hanging from the ceiling

6 Kino 4ft 4 banks from the bottom wall creating backlight for all the people in the scene

4/6 Kino Parbeam 400 for frontal fill (cameras side)

Anyway with this I think (but I might be wrong) that I will have an evenly lit room with an acceptable backlight for the talents...

please I need your help doing the same lowering the budget to 700$

Since lighting/grip rental prices vary so much, how about a price for your current setup as a reference?

Marco,

Is this a student project or just low budget? Either way WN will give you a discount for those situations, as well, tell them the budget you have to work with and try to work their quote down. I've had packages from them before over 2000 that I got for 900-1000.
