Hi, I work at a university and we are in the process of building a new film studio. The studio is 2500 square feet with a rig fairly high up. On three walls there will be an infinity curve.

 

I'm trying to find some advice and suggestions as to what you would put in there in terms of lighting please? I've not had to spec a studio this size before so any advice would be really helpful. So far all I've got on my list is 10 x 6K space lights. As a university we are on a bit of a budget so just looking for a basic studio set up as a start. 

 

Thanks in advance, Paul.
