I might be doing a job with either the epic or fs700 in a leather factory and I was wondering what fixtures would be best to use. 
 
My thoughts were that I would get flicker with their house fluorescents so I would have to bring all the light sources. 
 
From the looks of it to expose to RED at 300fps, 800iso, f2.8 I would need at 4 stops more than the REDs base at 500fc putting me at 8000fc. That seems to put me at a 1.8K lamp roughly 4ft from the subject through a 250 1/2 white frame. 
 
Fortunately it will mostly be medium shots and closeups and macro shots. 
 
I was wondering if anyone could give tips on shooting in this situation and maybe confirm if my calculations are correct. 
 
Also does anyone know how to convert db sensitivity to footcandles?
