Lighting ideas and methods for miniature crime drama
Posted 16 August 2006 - 11:53 AM
One scene I would like to have the charactors work through a dark apartment crime scene holding flashlights as the flashligh beam shows throught the smokey enviroment. Any cheap LED type ideas for flashlights the robotic charactors could hold? Or even a to scale police light flashing through a window from outside?
Also looking for ways to move the camera. Probably a small slider or something . . .
The charactor are about 12" talls.

Dedolights & dental mirrors sound like good ideas. I'd avoid battery-powered flashlights though; they die too quickly. Maybe LED lights can be useful. Use could use heavy baling wire as a form of mini C-Stand, if you can figure out where to mount the wire to.
Instead of baling wire try Armature wire. It is a bendable wire used for making a wire skeletons for modeling clay. It is very bendable and comes in many different thicknesses. You can get it at any good art supply store. I have a huge selection of mirrors mounted just this way.
