How to Make Your Own Basic Lighting Kit at Home [Video]

If you're making a film on a small budget, you'll definitely want to check out our latest YouTube tutorial, led by Full Sail Lighting I Course Director Luke Leonard. Luke shows how to build a lighting kit from items you can find at your local hardware store for less than $100, then how to use those tools to light your subject.

Check out the video below, and here's the shopping list for the lighting kit:

  • Incandescent light clamps
  • 150W tungsten bulbs (daylight bulbs if you're shooting outdoors)
  • PVC pipes and accessories
  • Pantyhose
  • Black T-Shirt
  • White T-Shirt
