Claudio Miranda: 'Budget Busters'

From American Cinematographer, Anarchy in the U.S.A. by Christopher Probst (November 1999)

"We lit a lot of Lou's basement with what we called 'Budget Busters'. They were basically small, clamp-on aluminum work lamps that you can get from Home Depot for $2. We had the art department age them down and make them ugly; then we'd just throw one of them up to create a glow in the background, which really added a lot of dimension and texture. We put those all over the place in the film, using standard 60-watt household lightbulbs, and Jeff absolutely loved them."

- Claudio Miranda, gaffer for Cronenweth on Fight Club
