I am a student and am currently working on a 10 minute student film. I will be shooting with 16mm Kodak color film, stock 7219 with an ISO of 500T.
I want to shoot an exterior street scene at night. The scene would involve my actor sitting on a stoop, walking to another house and hiding behind a bush. I wanted to figure out how to light this. I have been looking into renting two 1ftx1ft Bi-color Litepanels with a portable battery pack. However, I am not sure if this will be sufficient. Alternatively, is there a generator I could rent that won’t wake up the whole neighborhood and that won’t be cost prohibitive? The school does provide with one each of Arri 100w, 650w, 300w & 150w fresnel lights, but I get stumped when I try to figure out how to power them noiselessly and inexpensively.
Unfortunately, this is an intensive course and I don't have more than a week to figure all this out. A quick response will be much appreciated. Thank you.
