Hi
Im producing a short on film (Kodak vision2 250D Color Negative Film 5205/7205) and 1st time director rather ambitiously wants inside/outside transition shots to burn out/black out respectively before adjusting (giving a burning apocalyptic heat effect). Thought id get some professional advice on creating this effect and any advice on useful equipment.
Thanks

Use an aperture pull. If either the highlights or blacks (or both) are blown and/or crushed past the film's latitude, there won't be any image to work with in post. The equipment you need is a good 1st AC.

If there's a pan involved you could use a gag I used once where the sunlit part of the pan was behind a 5X6 ND6 filter on a C-stand. When I panned to the sun side, I automatically lost two stops behind the ND.
(I used some black wrap to make a light shield to flag reflections off the back of the filter.)
