Put together a list of lighting and grip stuff.

Going to do all the lighting and grip ourselves, with friends, and whoever else can help for an indie film, that takes place around houses/offices, day and night, inside and out. 

Wanted to share our list of equipment and ask if we’re missing anything critical or helpful.

feel free to toss in your favorite cheap lights or modifiers you can’t live without, thanks.

that's pretty good list, I like have large black material and white sheets / muslin, I find them very useful, just neg entire side of a room, means less lights to use too or throw a large sheet of white or muslin for bounce but you have plenty there..I've mostly shot on a lot less
