    You maybe could also rent one of those big party tents...one that has open sides. (Usually people from the company set them up for you.)

    They are obviously for rain, but here one can be used for light(s).

    There is one thing here - when a client says 'you cant recce', 'we cannot get the location to flick a stwitch' then one has to be wary of the client - production of video is a team effort between client team and shoot team. Im noticing too many clients expect us to fix everything.

    We are trying to make a video for the client after all. Trying to represent them, or thier goods/services in the best light. (pun intended)

    As DP or producer part of the skill is to work with the people who say no and change thier answer to yes. Its much easier than hauling a huge lighting rig about.

    Technical fix.. Make the ambient lights dark! Ie have ones own lights in close and on full power, if ones own package forces 1/64 ND in camera ths local lights will impact in only a minor way on the frame. One still gets flicker, but it is less impactful.

    Ive done this in a factory before.
