Hi everyone! So I am doing a music video in a couple of days. 2 particular scenes I wanted to fill the background with Maxi Brute lights using them as practicals behind our band members (to resemble stage/star lighting). My location is a hotel and after speaking with the electricians there they have assured me they have enough power to run 2 of these lights off their main electrical room (the light is 3 phase and 62 amp I believe which has been giving the okay by the electricians at the hotel). I want these lights specifically to be used as practicals for when the band member walks on stage and we see these in frame lighting him from behind. Is there any other light that looks like the maxi brutes that I can use in the frame behind the performer? Or shall I continue down this route using these lights? Any suggestions would be appreciated or advice on these lights. Thanks! (P.S. This is the look I was thinking of)
Hi All, I'm an advanced digital filmmaking student @ the Digital Film Academy, DFA, in NYC. My thesis film, calls for an elaborate, EXT NIGHT sequence, where sodium vapors are the over whelming light source. I found 2 Colortran 650 mini brutes, in hopes of over powering the sodium's with tungsten or day light source. My issue is the instruments came wired with two, two pinned pigtailed post. I assume, they are 220V. I would like to rewire them to 110V Edison plugs. I can't decipher how to properly series them to either, 3 two light or 2, three light configurations. Please advise.
