Hi everyone... Which websites are good for Advanced Lighting techniques and Tricks....?

 

One of the best resources I have seen online that explains the differences in HMIs and tricks for how to run them on small portable generators is an article by Guy Holt on the “Use of Portable Generators in Motion Picture Production."

 

Because of the constant improvement in HMI technology since they first came out in the 80s there are many versions of HMIs available and if you are not careful you can get screwed trying to run them on portable generators. In ballast design you have a choice between magnetic and electronic ballasts; and to complicate matters even more, you have a choice between Power Factor Corrected electronic ballasts and non-Power Factor Corrected electronic ballasts. Guy’s article shorts out which you can use safely on portable generators and which you can’t.
