I'm lighting a small show on a football field, with stadium lights up, and I'm looking for any ideas on lower end lights that will have some visibility. We're leaning towards LEDs in the design because of power issues - by the time we run cable and a break out, plus dimmers, the LEDs are probably cheaper. I want to rent a bunch to play with, but I'm a bit inexperienced.
Without running a professional power setup, I have two 15amp circuits to work from.
Event is a rock band...
I have no illusions about doing fancy lighting under my budget, I'm mostly looking for some sort of pretty colors to make the audience think we did something fancy. The whole performance is about 15 minutes, and the budget is around $10K. Equipment has to be purchased new for the actual show, no rentals.
We're renting gear this week for a test run. I'm going to try a couple of different LED pars, and although I have my doubts my partner is bringing a Chauvet colorstrip. Any other thoughts on what we might try?
