Posted 17 August 2007 - 08:48 PM
so.. how do i light this scene without making it look burned? please give me advice with what light should i use, gels... etc
and also, i need to shoot a scene, something like the scene in The Graduate, where Dustin Hoffman's character is chilling out at the pool, and his parents and his parents friends came to talk to him... I want that look of his parents and their friends, where u can't really see their faces.. u can only see their silhoutte.. I am going to shoot this scene outdoors, in the cemetery.. without electricity access..
please help. I'm sorry for my poor english.
Oh yes.. I am going to shoot this on Panasonic HVX200

second: strong back light, no key, dim fill. use reflectors, sun and/or mirror.

There's already a thread in here on this topic. Actually, any thing you can think of and can afford will stand for a dream sequence. It really doesn't have to require any particular effects. David Lynch did most of his with peculiar acting from his performers. That didn't cost a dime more beyond a regular shoot. If you can get your mits on a copy of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me you'll see just how dreamy and creepy a simple approach can be. "With this riiiiing, I the Wehhhhhhhhhhhd."
