Though there are many threads on this topic already, I specifically am wondering about shooting something a TV screen at 29.97?

My shot involves seeing an actor in the FG with a TV in the BG, though not too distant. For a short shot, with no synch dialog, but some small actor movement, will shooting at 29.97 (it's S16 w/ SR3) look strange?

We're posting in HD, there will never be a print.

Obviously, there will be a pull down at some point for the regular footage, but if something is shot 29.97 and doesn't need to be pulled down won't that be jarring. Mixing TV feeling footage at 29.97 in with the 24 fps feel of film?

thanks.

Why don't you shoot at 23.976 fps with a 144 degree shutter angle? There would be no slowing down of the action, and you would be able to shoot the tv without problem, because you'd get a 1/60s exposure.

I've done exactly this and it looks fine. Just keep in mind that the movement in the TV image will be slowed as well, and the TV's audio will be out of synch.
