Nope! Didn't cost me a thing: The equipment was someone else's. :biggrin:
I was given the use of a small movie studio (they do 3D video) and got to use their hot lights.
The light I used was a much larger version of the one below (this one is less than six inches long
and the lens is three inches across - the studio's had a lens of about twelve inches):

This old Bardwell and McAlister is surprisingly bright. For instance; to get the lens of the lamp

measured at f/16.5.
