I have an international project coming up this June and i'm seeking advice as to what kind of lights I should bring...
The script calls for a combination of interior and exterior lighting setups. The majority of my interiors will be motivated grungy restaurant/apartment scenes, while alot of my exteriors will be mid-day on the streets.
I am shooting on the SONY EX 1/3 with a 7D w/ 50mm 1.4 as a backup/skeleton crew cam. Through this I have solid low light sensitivity available.
At this point I am thinking of bringing some K-NO DIVAs (2 bank) and a couple of ARRI aces and would love a Joker 1.2 HMI. I wouldn't forget plenty of diffusion and bounce boards for the exterior street shooting. The thing is I have to be practical seeing that my crew of 10 has to transport equipment as check in luggage on the plane.
One of the major challenges I face is that I have never been to Europe or dealt with the 220 voltage. Any advice from any DPs who have to travel often?
Let me know your thoughts,
