Hey guys, I would love your communal advice on what lights to get for $5k. These are to be our in-house package, to cover interviews, small narrative scenes, and quick spec shoots.
I have several thoughts, but would love your sage advice:
Arri Softbank Kit. (650, 300, 150, 150, Chimera) Approx $2,400. <Plus a 2K?>
2) DAYLIGHT: too many options...
A) Kino Interview Kit (Two 4x2s) - $2,360 <leaning towards this, love their versatility. I'd get it with Daylight and Tungsten bulbs>
B) Riffa Triple Soft Kit (Rifa 88, 66, 55) - $2,059 <with Daylight/Tungsten bulbs>
C) Litepanels LED Flypak (1 Spot, 1 Flood LED) - $3,500 <expensive...>
D) LED's by Coolights - $2,000 (for 1200, 600, 256) <realiable?>
E) A joker of some kind...
I'm basically looking for a mixture of hard/soft light, and daylight/tungsten. But you guys are in the field much more than I am. Waddya think?
