My full owned lighting package is a kit I have assembled as a versatile but not overblown setup.  It alone has suited me for years lighting a variety of different types of projects, including documentary interviews, narrative films, music videos, commercials and more.  When load-in specs require, I can break this package down into a variety of mini-kits.  These come in handy when loading in "through the front" is required.  Whenever needed, however, any additional specialized lighting and grip can be hired in at very competitive rates from local rental houses that I've built relationships with.
