    Help!

    Ok so I'm trying to get a guy by doing some lighting for him. The catch? It's film lighting, something I've never had experience with before.

    BTR lamps not fitting in fresnels?

    We recently inherited some 6" fresnels that it seems like a BTR/BTN lamp base is too big for the socket. Has anyone ever run across this or have any suggestions on what lamps would fit? Thanks!
