My film students have access to a few lights, and we have about $2k- $3k to acquire some more.
Currently, we own a few Mole-Richardson lights (2 minis, 3 babies, 1 junior).
A few Lowell lights (3 Totas, 2 Omnis)
And a few Smith-Vectors (3 open-face quartz lights, 300W range)
We also have stands for all of these, and we have about 8 extra heavy duty light stands and plenty of C-stands. We have two flex-fills (black/silver) and barn doors for everything, and two shiny boards.
There are many students, and I'd like to facilitate 4 productions at once, doing location, indie film-style work.
They are in our program for several years, so they'll develop some expertise. I'm not a DP, but I frequently invite guest DPs to help with that instruction.
I kind of want to avoid more heavy gear and try to get a bit more lightweight and less hot of lamps.
