Hey Guys, really need your help.
I'm on the end of a Pre Production, and I need your help.
I'm shooting a promo video for a city in Portugal, it's filmed by the night so I'm gonna need some light.
I'm filmming with a Canon 60d with a 50mm lens, I'm filming outside and in movement as Inside and stable.
The city is Braga, if you wanna check photos of the lights of the city at night.
Hope you guys can help me.


What kind of help do you need? Are you looking for a crew, equipment recommendations, camera techniques etc.?

I'll have to make a lot of assumptions, but it sounds like you're on the move a lot and probably recording while in motion, right? I don't know what your crew is like, but some LED fixtures would probably be ideal, especially if they can be hand-held without too much trouble. I don't know what the street lights are like in Portugal, but if they are sodium vapor, you'll want tungsten-balanced lights. If they are LED or mercury vapor, you'll want daylight balanced. In the city, there will probably be a lot more spill from store fronts which are likely tungsten or fluorescent. It may be good to invest in adjustable LED fixtures so you can dial in the color you need. Adjustable brightness is also probably going to be good to have.
The color rendering from LEDs aren't generally that good, but this is one place where convenience and ease are more important than color quality.
