I'm doing this small scene where there are three characters in a room and the only source of light is a projector from which a film is playing on the screen.

How do i create this kind of an effect where i can see projector images falling on characters body and there is no other light source.

Thanks

Just use the projector. For the CUs you can use a poly to bounce some fill back in to the shadows. You fill find that the light from the projector is quite strong.

Don't be such a prick, Jonathan. It's a very complicated artform.

Good luck, Siddharth. You're braver than me. ;)

hi Siddharth

I understand when you said "only source of light is a projector" but perhaps help you using a very low practical lamps in walls or tables (background or sides), hope helps

Good luck

...with very simple solutions in this case.

I don't get why I'm a prick if I'm helping a guy out...I didn't mean the "obviously" in a condescending tone.

Again Matthew, read more into people's posts before mouthing off.
