Not everyone can afford a pair of KinoFlo’s, or perhaps can’t justify dropping several thousand dollars on lighting for a simple side project. This is where this incredibly uncomplicated, incredibly quick DIY light project comes into play. It’s so simple, the only thing that requires tools is attaching the mounting brackets to the light fixture, which, it turns out, is as easy as it sounds. Plus, the entire setup will cost you about $71 a light including the bulbs.
Now, as you’re watching the video, keep in mind that this DIY project has the hobbysist in mind, as a professional shooter working on a large production may not want to show up to set with a DIY light setup–though the creator of the video, Basic Filmmaker, says he has (once) just to prove they’d work.
