Here's ep 1 of what I hope will be a series of DIY vids of the equipment we use at EGE:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/xb-qsPxniTc?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/xb-qsPxniTc?version=3&amp;amp;hl=en_US</a>

Equipment list:
- 1 dishpan
- 4 $1 exterior single bulb light fixtures (usually seen around Christmas time for outdoor displays)
- 8 lightbulbs
- 4 "Y" bulb spliters (2 bulbs, one socket)
- old curtain rod
- some zip ties
- one bolt/wind nut
- 1 power strip
- 1" drill bit/drill
- 1 hacksaw

TOTAL COST - right about around $20 (your mileage may vary - I had the power strip, tools, and got the bulbs on sale)

Yes, Garry, they dig it up, they cart it back, it gets thawed out, wakes up - probably not the best of moods...

Stank you.  It has a few advantages over a similar design at indiemogal -

one, you don't need to wire anything, which I'm guessing some people wouldn't care to do. 

2nd, it's about $50 cheaper (albeit, I did find a great sale on florescent light bulbs).

3rd, with a rod attached, it's to hold on to if your need a grip to do so

- Otherwise, it functions exactly the same.

Pity?

Nice video. I think you will see more traffic from tutorials like that. So I assume that you just need to move the light a little bit closer to the talent when using fluoros?
