    Oh...you better believe it.... Embroidered and everything with things like "director" and "client". I'm telling you, presentation is everything. Make your setup look pro, make your commercial look pro, and people will be knocking down your door to use your services.

    I think of it like this... I want people to think that they are on a hollywood movie set. We even have a digital scene marker and all, an audio person, a couple of HPX500's decked out with accessories, and now we'll have a bunch of lighting and some big soft box lights, directors chairs, a crane or track dolly, etc.

      How big a size of softboxes would you think would be adequate for what you want to do?

        is it really about size though? Isn't it more about how you use it?

            Well, If you knew how much we got them for, you would be impressed. We went with SD lenses on them, which helped with the budget. They are financed though.......

            We just didn't want to spend a ton on lighting. We used to be a sound and stage lighting company, so whenever we needed lighting, we would just use some pars on dimmers, or fresnels, etc. Now we need to purchase some real video lights.

            I dunno about the size of the softboxes though. Your's appear big enough, but bigger might be better. I actually like the ones with the spandex type material over the front of them, like 48" or bigger.
