Jay P. Morgan over at F-stoppers just posted a great video tut showing how to make rain. It is a lot simpler that what I thought. And all it takes is fan head sprayer (like the one from your back yard).
I checked on Amazon, they go as low as $7.30.
This 3:51 video is packed with lighting tips. Aside telling how to light rain, it discusses light placement, modifiers motivation and ambient control. All with examples. For me it just felt like a workshop squeezed into half a coffee break.
