A good lighting generator


New member
hey Guys- Demetrius here

I have a 26 ft box truck with around 4-tons of grip equipment. Im goingto purchase a nice lighting setup with a arri 650s 1k- 5ks and possibly a 24k. Im a director and cameraman but dont know too much about lighting except which are good to buy...lol. but my question is, what is the best generator to use to power all of my lights and gear? I was looking on ebay but $12k for a generator is kinda steep.

any suggestions? please let me know your opinion... I want to purchase around 1-2wks after my lights arrive

thanks, chao!

not sure how to help you. you can do research online for motion picture production generators.
