Hi everyone, I am working on a video project. the director wants some shutter, his reference is a scene in Hard Candy where the girl storms through some drawers, looking for something, there is a lot of camera movement, and the image is very very choppy. But it looks like 24fps, so I am thinking it is plain shutter angle, something bellow 45 degrees... Anyone has seen the movie and can confirmed my thoughts on the matter?? Or do you have films in mind that used a shutter angle bellow 45 degrees??
Thanks a lot!
If it's video why don't you just tinker with shutter settings until you're both happy?

these are 2 videos i shot for david slade about 6 years ago - they were shot at the same time, on the same set, i'm sure you'll notice. it was all done at an 11º shutter, with the non-playback stuff often at 60-90 fps, on 5274 (200 asa)! and i think a lot of the playback was done at 50fps, with the track rolling double speed, and sounding like the chipmunks on speed. this was before the optimo or the hawk were widely available on that budget level, so we shot on a bunch of long lenses that were about an f4 wide open... he let me go to a 22º shutter for those. one good thing about those lenses was that they got me out from under the lights! man it was hot in there...
hope this helps and, plan well!

Thanks for the input.
Another question while we are talking about shutter angle, will extreme shutter angle such as 11 degrees induce flicker when using HMI on a magnetic ballast?? I imagien that a safety rule when doing stuff like this would be to always shoot flicker free... Also, should I worry when using a small genie (with an inverter) with flicker free lamps, such as kinos for example?
