I positioned both lights about head level on the background, trying to produce even lighting on the portion of the screen that showed behind me in the shot. In the small setup shown in Figure 3 (below), these four-bulb lights worked perfectly.

You need separate lights for the subject, and for this I used some ePhoto softboxes that I've had for awhile, specifically, the ePhoto VL9026s 2000 Watt Lighting Studio Portrait Kit, which now costs $167 on Amazon (Figure 4, below) . I’ve had these for just under two years, and they provide lots of cheap, undirected light, which is perfect for office shoots like this one. You don’t have the control for moody, nuanced lighting, but for flat or slightly shadowed lighting, they're ideal. Both sets of lights are daylight balanced, so I didn't have to put shades on my windows.

If you look at Figure 1, you can see that I've positioned these lights slightly above my head pointing towards my face, both about 45 degrees from my nose, with one light using 3 bulbs, the other 5 to create a slightly shadowed look to model the face. You can see that in the final video below.
