Thanks very much for the replies,
First, i had no idea those chinese lantern things were no longer the rage!
The torcier is a good suggestion in my case, but i just found out that i will be travelling (via air) and need something i can throw in a suitcase.
What would you guys say about a few of these (150w version): http://www.alibaba.com/product-gs/230488055/Spot_Light_halogen_light_.html
Would you say to go for two in diagonal corners of the room or 4 to go in each corner, or are they too low? would i be better bouncing them from each corner or pointing each one straight into the middle of the room?
I do understand the concept of lighting in general as my background is from commercial photography, But to try and get smooth results with this new video project giving me freedom to move in a very small room (even filming into spots where light stands are) very quickly and hassle free set up that is easy to pack away and travel with has me stumped.
I am not looking for anything special, no seperation or dimension to the lighting, just flat contrast free evenly lit boring lighting where everything is visable without shadows or noise.
Can anyone suggest a magic tool to fit into my suitcase?
