First I just want to say how chuffed I am to discover this forum, all of your threads and advice have been so helpful to newbies like myself, and the videos some of you have produced are incredibly inspiring!
I'm looking to get back into stop animation, since taking a few years out doing my degree in film.
Anyway, I'm trying to collect together the basic equipment and materials to start building my set, but I am a little unsure on a good low-cost lighting set up to start.
I would describe the locations/scenes to you all, but I'm really just looking for an all-round lighting setup I can use for many different projects, just the basics really that will give me a good starting point.
For my studio, i'm using a small-ish carpeted spare room so I also don't want to use big lights that are going to get too hot.
Sorry for rambling, and if you can decipher what any of this question means, I would be very happy to hear your help :)
Thanks in advance!
Hi StopmoNick! Thank you so much for your really helpful advice, I'm going to look online to see what lights I can get in the UK similar to what you suggested. Its so rewarding to get an expert's advice :)
Can't wait to get started on my film!
