I use a couple Mole-Richardson Baby-Babys. http://www.mole.com …/baby_fres/2831​/2831.html (external link) They work very well as a key and fill light, (with filtering, as I do not have them on dimmers). Right now I have a 750 watt in one and a 500 watt in the other.

When I looked at your video space I have to say that I think you are going to have a challenge with the low ceiling height. 8' is not nearly high enough unless you are only filming seated talent. Your best lighting angle for most video shooting is around 40 degrees above your focus point, (with the obvious exceptions for special situations and effects). Much lower than that and you start to get very flat looking scenes and present your talent in an "unflattering light" (pun intended).
