I recently found about this community, and I am really fond of it. I found a lot of answers here, but now I would really like some more help from you.
I am in prep for my final student film, and this is going shot on 35mm stock. The thing is that I am making a thesis about visual effects (masks, rampings and different filters) and I need to implement these things in the movie.
I have a shot like this: A man looks at himself in the reflection, and when he turns around and leaves, the reflection stays there. I thought about shooting it with masking, but it would be extremely hard for the actor to synchronize himself between the takes (one for himself and the other one for the reflection). Then I thought about making this in post; shooting both situations and then just masking it out in the lab.
Do you guys know how this works? Can it be done optically? The movie is shot in 35mm and then projected in 35mm - no digital process involved here (due to my student budget).
Help for my licence film?
