Whats up guys! Today, I’m teaching you how to rig a beautiful cinematic lighting setup $50 or less.

Lighting is SO IMPORTANT and its pretty easy to get great results FAST. This is how I quickly throw together a studio light setup for filming inside without natural light on a tight budget!

Clamps :
Lee Filter Gels :
LED Panel : (Get the 2500 Lumen model – its cheaper and available in store)
Gaff Tape :
Cheap Light Stand :
Foam Core 2 Pack :

Haha I was expecting you to follow up the ironing board line with “I’ll drop some links to some cheap ironing boards down below.” By the way this is the best looking, best working and cheap DIY light set up I have ever seen. I can’t believe I have not thought of it!

Hey Peter, your videos are amazing! I am very new to making videos but I want to start and your videos have been very helpful. I always thought making videos was something that required thousands of dollars to do and only if you’ve had years of training to make anything look good, so I never tried. Not saying it’s easy to make great pieces but you’ve opened my eyes to the fact that some of these things aren’t that hard to do, just have to start, practice, and work your way up. Thanks for all you do and keep up the great work!!!!

Brandon Lucas says:

Can you please do a more in depth video on lighting and the different techniques of lighting just so people like me who dont really understand it can grasp the concept…nothing TOO deep but maybe just scratch the surface…and maybe you can do a couple different parts to it so the people who subscribe to you that dont really understand lighting can follow and learn more advanced tricks of the trade as you go along. It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Great channel btw!

Nice video Pete!
Whenever I have a problem, you have the solution!

Pablo Gonzalez says:

this is perfect! I already use color plastic but I see the gel is soft and that’s cool.
The problem is that I like to shoot outside so if you have more ideas of lighting outside (without cables) it would be perfect, I have some ideas but I have to learn. Cheers!

Phil Jamieson says:

rim light from your screen is doing it!

adam sisk says:

Do you recommend just the blue gel to start, or are other colors necessary? I notice you’re only using the medium blue in the video. Thanks!

Chin Narciso says:

Alejandro García says:

Why the light of the LED panel turns yellow when you put the foam core?

Samuel Rivera says:

Man I would really love to see more lighting tutorials. Different looks, etc. Loving the channel too, I’m going back and watching the rest of your videos. Thanks for what you’re doing!!

gaff tape melts on hot lights, C47’s are the way to in most cases.

Awesome video! I’ve got some philips hue RGB lights laying around my house. Do you think those could work in place of geling a work light?
