have to create the shadow of a person running to be projected on a wall created by a flash of lightning....
the person running is not seen - just thier shadow on the wall....
(hope this makes sense)
will be using HDV
was told to use strobes but i think they will be too fast to render any recognisable shadow...
is this at all possible or should i suggest "they do it in post"
thanks in advance

David, here in Jakarta they dont have that accessory
Andres, the director doesn't want to do it in post
Have been told a rental house here has a "Lightning Machine" - whatever that is. i have been
told its so powerfull it needs its own generator.... i will let you know how it goes.

what about a flash unit from stills photography?
Too fast. He needs a burst (or several) long enough to see a shadow moving on a wall.
I'm amazed that he can get an expensive Lightning Strikes unit (which I've never been able to afford) but can't get some cheap metal blinds for an HMI at his rental house.

Yep, trying to find simple things like metal blinds are very difficult and time consuming in Indonesia.....but high tech rental equipment is everywhere here.....
So I ordered some strobes - but they never arrived (things can be very casual on TVC shoots here )
So...... they will do it in post!!!! - nobody seemed too fussed....
I really would have liked to see how that lightning strikes machine works.... oh well - maybe next time....
