    Basically single CF bulb lights do not produce enough light for your purposes.
    Look for lights that use 4 or 5 CF lamps with adjustable light control.
    Generally there is NO such thing as too much light, at least for all practical purposes.
    Your link to youtube shows that the videographer was using 1:1 lighting ratio (no discernible shadows on either side of the spokespersons face)
    It is easy enough to keep the lights from reflecting off your glasses, just move them so that the angel of incidence does not allow refection into the camera.
    EDIT: You could use one of these adapters to add more CF lights to the single lamp fixtureshttp://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/88…
