Hi everybody,

I'm looking to buy a professional lighting kit for a stop motion studio I want to set up, for puppet stop motion work mostly. I thought about buying 2-3 150w Dedolights , and one short 4-bulb Kino-flo, with both 5200k and 3200k bulbs.

I want this lighting set to cover many lighting options for various shots i might have to cover. and also be reliable products for intensive work.

so what you guys think?

any suggestions and personal experience insights are welcome

dedo lights- good choice, regulated so less flickering issues, very versatile, and later on dmx controllable for full automation- i haven't yet encountered another light so suitable for our purposes.

I'd definitely recommend them.

Hi Daniel,

I suppose it all comes down to budget and size of set. We shoot a short series for CITV called Compost Corner on a 6ft x 4ft set. Here's our lighting rig:

1 x 300W Arri Key Light (the Sun)

1 x 300W Arri Fill Light (used with a large white bounce board) 

2 x 300W Cyclorama Up Lights (back lights)

1 x 150 Arri Spot 

This is as about as basic as you get (for broadcast) and it suits us fine. We tweak with an additional 150 Arri spot and white bounce boards as and when required. We use white foam board as bounce boards. We tweak with gels to achieve different moods  - night, twilight etc. 

To help with flicker check out this vimeo, we also incorporate this technique:

Hope this helps,

Wes

thanks, yes my set is about the same size. I think I'll go with dedolights since I had worked with them before :)

Hey, I am just embarking on a new stop-motion project. The last film I made was on 16mm to give you an idea of how long it has been between drinks. I have made a sculpt of my protagonist and am ready to begin making a mold. All the research I have…Continue
