Lidl are selling 500w lights on stands thoday
It’s 19.99 for 2x 500w lights on a low stand and 24.99 for two mounted on an
extendible stand that reaches 1.35m ( I know not very high , but you could put it on a chair)
I would buy some , but I’m broke , anyone intersted in becoming our lighting pro ?March 3, 2007 at 3:42 pm #2672SeanBreathnachKeymaster
Anyone up for hiring the basic cans from the CFC (they cost about €30) for a day and tooling about with lighting just for the sake of seeing what works, what doesn’t work, what looks good, what gels look best etc? Or better still, are there any lighting experts out there who’d like to give a few of us the benefit of their experience?

yeah I’d be interestedMarch 3, 2007 at 10:25 pm #2674inkyMember
i used some of those film centre lights yesterday…they’re battered but still do the trick – used grease proof paper from tesco to difuse and some ‘borrowed’ blue & orange gels (not included in the kit) and it all looked great … maybe we could rent the kit for shooting ‘Saturday’ for the interior scenes? anyone know anyone in the opera house or everyman who could throw us a sheet of gel?March 4, 2007 at 3:47 pm #2675DanMember
yeah i think this might be a wise move, i think it might benefit a lot of people.
maybe we should plan what we intend to shoot. ie wideshot tests, close up, backlighting, objects, people that sort of thing.
nows the time to scower the web for lighting techniques and try them out.May 28, 2007 at 10:11 am #2676
Did ye do this? how did it go?

I’m Trying to organise a workshop with Rupert mac on lighting techniques
Should be good , He’ll bring along his JVC GY HD camera and all.
Definitely want to rent lights for "Saturday" , but I’m skintMay 30, 2007 at 10:46 am #2678
Have you asked "trendkill"?
They have their own lights and sound equipment, among other
LiamMay 30, 2007 at 10:51 am #2679
He might be coming , and he might not , he’s not sure if he’s around
Rupert ( wildogmedia ) has a very comprehensive set up for this demonstration. He’s a lecturer in Stefan Naofa’s multimedia course and has shot some great stuff ( shown in last years Film Festival " ATA Girl" )
This really is a great opportunity for practical hands on experience of lighting set ups , we should have some very experienced people there willing to pass on their experience to those of us who know less .
I’m certainly looking forward to it
SeanMay 31, 2007 at 8:13 am #2680
I meant trendkill may be able to help you out with lights for "Saturday"
not with the lighting demo.
LiamMay 31, 2007 at 8:26 am #2681
Sorry.May 19, 2009 at 11:17 pm #2682Eoin O hAMember
How did this work out for ye?
Looks like a great idea! I’d definitely be up for something like this again. In fact I might have to hire equipment for my short next month so if I do we might be able to arrange something then? Get maximum value for money!May 20, 2009 at 12:10 am #2683DanMember
that was a long time ago now, but it went extremely well, Rupert did a fantastic job of showing us all what was possible to achieve with such a little amount. The last I heard through the grapevine is he was planning on doing another one if we can get the numbers, I’ll have a chat with him about it next Tuesday night to see if he is still willing.
Incidentally if you are hiring lights make sure and send him an email, he has some of the best kit in town at really good rates.
He is contact able though the forum, rupertmacmurph I think is his user name
Or you could visit his website at http://www.stormlightproductions.com i think….May 20, 2009 at 12:00 pm #2684Eoin O hAMember
