I work for a small company that sells farm implements. We create sales video in our studio. We recently built a new studio with a white cyc type wall that has a total length of 43 feet and 20 feet high. The first section of wall is 28 feet, then with a curved 90 turn, then another 7 feet of wall. We want to shoot this with the wall over exposed to pure white. We are planning on lighting the subject with 4 to 6 1000 watt soft lights. What type of light would be most economical to allow us to over expose the entire length of this wall? How many lights? We are planning on hanging the lights from the ceiling. Thanks for your input.

I like SpaceLights for that...

btw.. without knowing your asa and frame rate, there is no way to say how many lumens you'll need.

To light the cyc itself, traditionally you would use (what else?) cyc lights.

Now if you don't need to put them through a big dimmer, you might consider fluorescents such as Kinoflos, that would make it easier to switch over the daylight-balance if needed.
