I'm shooting in an working office, and I want to light the actors from above with Par Cans, which are relatively light units. There are neither pipes nor beams in the ceiling, so I would like to screw three wall plates with studs into the ceiling, and hang the Pars from them. However I'm not sure yet if the owner is going to let me drill.
As an alternative, I was thinking about a wall spreader or a Matthpole, and hang the Pars from them with clamps, but the walls are about 23 feet apart, which, I think is too long for either.
What other options do I have, if any?
