    too lightweight for stability, I'd fill the base sections with concrete. Also, i realise you were just demonstrating, but when running the cable for the light, it is better to go under the base of the tripod. That way if someone trips or pulls on the cable the base shifts but the light stays up, otherwise it all gets pulled over.
