i will use beta, aiming for a reddish dirty look. it does not meant to look professional!

Another thing you'll greatly want to consider when lighting your subject is to flag off your lights from spilling onto the projection material. You'll want to keep that part of the set as dark as possible, because you'll need every bit of contrast you can get. And, any spill from your lights on the screen is only going to negatively affect that.
As far as the choice of light goes, I don't think it matters specifically, as long as your choice works within the context of your scene. You do want to make sure that your lights, either with or without gels, match the color temperature of your projection for white balance purposes, so that both the projected elements and the subject the you're shooting have accurate color.
Hope this helps!

or would you think to use something else?
the image quality meant to be quite dirty, grainy, almost out of focus so the quality might not be the issue, but the colour temperature?
thanks for your answer, i really appreciate it!
