"Lightning" for a Night Storm scene
on Nov 25, 2009 at 2:10:23 am

I will be shooting night scenes where it will be storming... I'm a fan of practical special effects, so I was wondering can anyone tell me what kind of lighting unit creates the "Lightning" on the set, or is it a special strobe fixture? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. I only want to do it digitally if I have no other options. Thanks and Happy Filmmaking!

They can be either. Depends on the budget.

This may be a bit late for you but for Future in our part of the world (south Africa) we use a simple modified Arch welder (with extention pads are added)

WARNING remember never to look directly into the light
