Blotchy Shadows

I would like to light my scene using faces that have the "Area Light" appearance applied to them, but whenever I do the the scene renders teh sahdow areas very blotchy- looks like an inkwell exploded. I know that you can a)Increase precision in the i2 settings and/or b) increase the resolution of the image, but this obviously increases render time by several orders of magnitude. I'm working on an animation so taking 30-60 minutes to render each frame is not an option.

Is there anything else anyone can suggest, or will I have to do a less than great animation because PW does a rubbish job at lower res's?
