For animating (both brickfilms and non) I originally used two tall (60cm) halogen desk lamps that reached over the top of the set and two ‘clamp lamps’ with standard energy saving bulbs at table level. I could not control the direction of those two lights. I have been plagued with flickering and flashing lighting issues for a while and it ruins everything I try to film. I tried not using the halogens after suggestion but the problem was not solved and I recently broke one of the bulbs for the clamp lamps (oops) so I didn’t use the lights at all for my last animation, just the room light.
To cut a long story short what kind of very low budget lighting can you suggest that will prevent flickering/flashing lighting? The room light does not give me enough control though the lighting I’m using at the moment isn’t great for creative lighting really.
Flickering is also caused by DSLRs. Are you using them?
I’m using a compact. I had a DSLR but I replaced it as it was impractical to carry around anywhere, like carrying an extra suitcase.I stopped using lights altogether except the room light.
