Looking for Guide Lighting for High Grain Film stock
 
I'm stuck using some small sensor, uber grainy camcorders for a municipal channel. Someone suggested I light as if I'm using lo-fi film, like 8mm or 16mm. "Embrace the grain" they said. :-)

The cameras are Canon R700s, (1/5th" sensor) so treating them like an 8mm isn't too far of a stretch.

I've found that stopping the exposure on them down -2 eliminates much of the grain, but then to light it bright enough at that setting blows out highlights.

What's a good guide book or blog I could read up on? I don't have a whole lot of time to experiment and we have to shoot ALOT of programs.
