Hi everybody,

I'll be shooting a scene around a carousel in Central Park in NYC or in Prospect Park in Brooklyn - depending on which location we get.

The trick is: a downpour starts in the middle of the scene, before the two run off into the carousel. the first thing that comes to mind is 'Manhattan' - a scene where it is already raining - and they did a pretty good (and extensive) job at making it look good (and real). Myself, having little experience with fake rain, am asking you all guys for an advice.

Also, what rental houses in NYC rent rain machines/towers? What do we need in term of permits, acces to hydrants, etc...

Thanks a bunch,

george
