Hey whatup. I'm currently the DP on an extremely low budget feature that's being shot in mid-August. We plan on using 2 cameras for most of the shoot (XL1s and VX2000) with a VX2001 and days needed. You'll need to plan lighting for the coverage of 2-3 cameras I would probably have a fill light (ie, a couple of china balls hanging from the ceiling to raise your ambient levels up (just as long as both cameras won't have the ceiling in the shot). For key light, etc... you just place them the way you want and just carefully compose your shots and camera placement. Really you just need to go out an see what works for you.

It's cool. I actually got that idea about buying chinese laterns from Scott Spears website a couple of weeks ago. I bought some clamp lights and extension cords from Ace (I gotta get some clamps too). 150-200W light bulbs from bulbs.com and gels, black wrap and gaffers tape from StudioDepot.com and Filmtools.
