My next shoot is a short drama based in the front seats of two cars, at night, in a dark layby. One of the cars is in darkness while the other, the setting for all the dialogue, has its interior lights on.

To get the best image, I was thinking about taking off the windscreen, this would then allow me to cheat a small soft source for the carlight and avoid glass distortion/reflection issues. Are there any rules of thumb to ensure the audience believe they are still inside the car? I know its similar to using a flying wall but, with the space so tight, I am concerned about breaking the illusion.


I am considering alternatives, like maybe keeping the screen in and just putting a tent over the front of the car and camera, is that a better option?

all opinions welcome
