we have a dark alley scene for a music video, originally this was to take place at night but for logistical reasons the producers pushed for day and the director and I went over some looks and decided on shooting in a dark shaded alley in daylight with strong backlight. I wanted a 12/18k (looking like itll have to be 12k though) but of course this is costly and the producer doesn't want to have to do it.
They rental house suggested a maxibrute. to me this seems ridiculous as a maxi is 9k and the 12k hmi has gotta put out something like 30k equivalent...right? I have seen par64 lamps put out quiet a bit of light but can the maxi really even compare?
attached is an old set photo that kinda has the look we want accept less orange and stronger backlight....it will be prob at least 3stops brighter then this in the alley...in this photo you can see just a molepar alone give me an edge and a maxi in the backround

I was reading this post as well: http://www.cinematog...showtopic=43769
people mentioned "Dichroics" are the best to try to use for daylight with a maxi...these are glass filters to put infront of the lamps for color correction or am I off?
btw I know server space isn't cheap...but it is 2010 might the admin/owner think about raising the file upload limit to 1mb or atleast 500k so we could see some nicer stills?
thanks for any info guys! this forum has been a life saver the least 2-3 years.
