I have been asked to shoot a small part (the only live action spot) on an animated spot. My part is a lemon being squeezed in front of a green screen. They want to see the juice to use that part.
My concerns are, 1). that if I ask there fx guys this question that I may appear amateur, so I want to know whether it is a valid question to ask there fx guys.
2). As a lemon being squeezed juice is semi opaque, the green from the screen will be seen in the juice. Is that a concern to raise to them?
3). A more generic question, I seem to take on some production managing roles with the level I am working. They ask for a quote with no specifics. I give them a price, and turn around with some requirements. Example: after telling them prices, and what might be limitations of certain gear, they may say, " the creatives insist on HD with as high frame rates as possible". So I can think, go to town, and shoot on a vari cam and invoice for that. If i was to do that then, they may hit the roof. So surely they should give me an indication of the budget, or a least time to sit down and put a package together. Your thoughts, or how have you approached this dilemma.

Just my two cents.
