I don't want to discount how useful it is to grab deals on professional
LED lights, but if you are looking for a cheap solution just to "fill
out" your stage lighting selection, then this is a really good option for you, especially if you get a thrill out of making things with your hands.
Here is a short list of materials you need for your lighting. Lots of these things are optional if you can find a suitable replacement (don't want to actually buy a light fixture? Steal one out of an old lamp!)
The key here is you want to get the cheapest materials possible.
Now I've done my best to give recommendations in the video for where to get cheap supplies. For example: choosing a paint store, rather than a general hardware store can save you 300% of your cost on the paint can.
When I went to get my paint cans from the "General Hardware Store" they tried to charge me $5 for a silly paint can. The painters store sold me the same can for $1.25 CAD.

My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.
If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.
Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot.
I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
