proper light set for chroma keying
on May 18, 2011 at 9:20:47 pm

Hey,

I'm planning a green screen shoot next month, i am looking for a proper light kit to buy.

I am no expert in this, but i guess ill be needing white light?

The actor should be lighted normal(daylight).

price between: 1000-1200 euro's

any suggestions?

Thx

Tons of info in previous threads on this forum... yes, I'd say over 2000 lbs. of it for sure. Just do a search on "green screen" or ?... and you'll find what you need.

LIght has color temperature so "white" doesn't mean to much beyond no gels maybe.

[Tielman Dewaele] "The actor should be lighted normal(daylight)."

Why? Do you feel you must have 5600K light rather than 3200K light?

[Tielman Dewaele] "price between: 1000-1200 euro's"

That's on the low end if you're looking for lights on the screen and on the talent.

At the very least you should watch/read some tutorials because it's very hard to fix a botched green screen shoot.

I'd suggest something like two Lowel Totas 3200K or maybe Flolights (or Coollights) 2 bank 5600K for the green screen but it may depend on the size of the screen. You might need to double your budget for a full kit.

If getting Totas then look at their Rifa, Omni (or maybe DP) , Pro lights, to light the talent. Size and type may depend on location.
