i will be shooting some plates to be used for rear projection eventually.
we are shooting the film on anamorphic but i'm thinking i should probably shoot the plates spherical with a full aperture 4x3 format to cover as much area as possible.
it will be my first time doing this and i will definetely check with an fx house before we go about it,
any advice will be greatly appreciated.

I would think that both the technology of rear projection and the shot it will be "comped" with will determine some of your choices. For example, I've read that the RP plates for 24 are shot with a PD-150 and projected with an LCD video projector. Fincher's The Game went much more detailed by matching focal lengths and f-stops between background plates and foreground.

But I've never done RP plates, only greenscreen. So it's only theory coming from me...
