hi
am gonna be shooting a song sequence in a college festival kind of set up. it is going to be in a indoor stadium. planning to mix lights light scanner, strobe lights for that focussed effect and strong beams and then par cans for spotiing on the players on the stage and some hmi s for the audience who will mostly be in dark. just need some advice on what stock to use (kodak) daylight or tungsten. can i go for low speed or high speed stocks. the scanners might be high intense....but i need the latitude to register the ambience too which might slightly low over all.
shooting on 435. kova lenses. thanks.

cheers

Hi, You need HMI's or can you play with tungsten lights, could work with 500 asa and rate it at 320 ASA or 400 ASA. Maybe you can have your HMI's gelled with 1/2 or 1/4 CTO so that they are not that blueish. Pars are good, specially with dimmers. If you are using a dimmer board, the issue and I tnink smart way of keeping things even is keeping a stop on the audience somewhat close to the stop on stage, and there is where a dimmer or mixer works great. Data flash strobe lights are dimmeable too, and certainly are great, For The background behind people a couple of par 64 on frame may work beautifoul, keep em low and at some point boost them on dimmer, that looks great, Ive done this with pars and some other times with mini brutes, always look cool, like the "Chop Suey" music video when they boost the ruby 7 in frame, that's cool.
