I have a shot in which a character is looking out a bedroom window with curtains to an off-screen ambulance in the driveway. The lights from the vehicle will illuminate her face and I plan on having very little fill behind her in the dark bedroom. I will be shooting on 5219 (500t) and I'd like to shoot at a f4.
Can you please recommend some ways in which to mimic that type of source with adequate power? I've seen everything from multiple lights bought at party stores to a rental of police style lighting rails that sit atop the vehicles themselves. Ideally it has enough throw to expose around an f4 and be far enough away to make the effect realistic.
I'd love to be able to do this effect within a reasonable budget, as it is only for one shot.
