Remote location shoot. Lighting ideas?
on Jan 31, 2012 at 12:24:13 am

Hi guys

I'm new to the forum though I've been hanging around getting Post Pro tips for a long time. My background is in Post bu I've recently been asked to shoot some location video for broadcast and I'm looking for tips. I'm in chrage of lighting and camera and will have two or three crew.

I'm shooting:

Daytime (avoiding noon)
Harsh sun (most likely)
Remote location (no mains power)
HD (probably DSLR)
Kids TV (so even, simple lighting, not moody)
Long shots (up to 8 performers)

Reflectors I don't think will cut it given the scale so I'm thinking more along the lines of a small generator and two large flood lights either side of the camera. (I just need to lose the shadows really) I just have no clue as to what to rent. Minimal crew as well so weight is an issue.

I'd also appreciate any ideas on lightweight jibs/dollys that'll support a DSLR or F3/Canon C300. There seem to be a few options but what's good?
