Shooting a TV screen on Film
Posted 08 November 2006 - 09:28 PM
I have already reccommended that we use an LCD TV (since that's so easy) but the location and the size of the TV that is in place already is ideal for the story of the script. It seems like it would be difficult to restage the scene we are shooting with a smaller television or in another location entirely.
My idea was to have the pre-recorded material we are showing on the TV be sped up by the exact ratio (29.97/24) to approx. ~37fps. In camera (16mm), we would shoot at the 29.97 speed regulated by the sync box. Would projecting/playing back at 24fps in the end-game cancel out the overcranking of the film camera with the sped up video image? Has anyone tried this?

I am interested in Stuarts idea as well.
If the soundtrack that is associated with the television image is strictly voice only, then you could just pull up the lines in post.
