I uploaded a couple more videos. Here's one on my gel management solution: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-IaBvG0vYvg
And here's a review of my favorite light stands:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2PtGl9tNAE
Possibly the riftlab Kick lights?
Pair it up with the lego wireless follow focus! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LB6LjzeLnZA
You might find this interesting. Awhile back Logan McMillain was directing a music video I was doing lighting/grip for and he put together a breakdown of how he planned it, how I lit it, the gear we used and thoughts behind it. http://www.littlesisterfilms.co.nz/case-studies/2014/7/nightchoir-pretty...
I've worked on 30+ paid music videos, and probably twice as many freebies. Music videos are liberating in many ways as you can focus on the image without so much stress about a strong narrative.... or a quiet set.
If people come to me wanting a video without a budget, I'll pitch them a doable, fast video that fits with the song. If they start asking for something different that is a lot more work or a less interesting video, I pass on the project. A singer-songwriter came to me for a video and I pitched something I thought would be easy/fast/fun to shoot and she went for it so we spent an afternoon driving around and filming this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PLt2ND4Ub-I .
I probably spent a day distressing and staining the chest, but it was fun so it didn't really count as work for me. I run a lighting a grip truck for a living, so of course when I'm in charge of a video its all natural available light. hehe.
This was my solution. For heavy cameras I put sticks in the middle and a pair of lightweight stands on the ends. https://youtu.be/JyHDAyeKwyg?t=208
