Fluorescent Tubes Lighting Fixtures for Music Video

I will be shooting some music videos for some friends and was wondering how to go about making some creative fluorescent lighting fixtures similar to the one in this video:

My question is how do I power the fluorescent tubes without them being enclosed in a case like they normally are because in the music video they stand on their own. Also does anyone know what kind of fluorescent bulbs would work best for this type of situation? Any advice would be appreciated.

Assuming your using Kino tubes/ballasts, you would need to use a Kino Flo Harness:

I would recommend seeing if any rental houses around you have these available. If you're trying to make an elaborate pattern, your going to end up spending a bunch of money.
