I'm working on a music video and I just can't solve how I'm going to rig my lighting.
We have no money for grips, just a gaffer that works as grip sometimes, and he hasn't all the time to solve that.
We gonna be building a studio on a empty warehouse because of budget issues. We checked twice for electricity and all the issues we may face choosing it instead of a real studio.
What is the idea?
The entire music video is placed on a large bedroom (5 sq. meters or 16,4 sq. feet). The plan was to place a 3x3 meters skirted butterfly overhead, and 4 4bank kinoflo over that butterfly, I think I'd have a soft light coming overhead, without spilling on walls. The whole thing needs to look a liltle dark and creepy. Then I'd use negative fill or a Diva Lite like, to create some contrast on the only actress that will be on the scene.
What's the problem?
I have no idea how to rig that. I tought about building a grid with crank tripods outside the studio flats, but it would take meters and meters of tubing.
I tought about lighting the actress with just a kino overhead, but I think I may lost the control of the continuity, as it would be moving and lighting the space in different ways, and I woudn't have that little-almost-nothing fill on the walls to get some details.
Do you guys have any example of a similar case? Any suggestions?
Sorry for any english mistake. Not a native!
Thank you all!
