I'm shooting a music video on the Moviecam LT 35mm camera all which will be shot at 36fps. I'm renting a 1800W Arri HMI Par w/ electronic ballast. Will there be flicker? Do I need to change my shutter angle to compensate? Thanks

I think that is a square wave HMI, which are usually safe at any speed without the need for compensation. Here is a bevy of information provided courtesy of Guy Holt:

Yes, at least up to the high hundreds or even thousands of frames per second, depending on make and model. They do have rise and fall times, but you need to rent a Phantom or Weisscam to find them.
