can someone tell me how to create lightning in a good and easy way!?
Would be ideal to find a way of doing it with different sources of different itensities shifted at almoust the same time without spending to much money
We are shooting on film.
I dont know if you normaly link the lamp (flash or "normal") with the cam so that you can be sure, that you hit the exposure!? But even if, we wont have any opportunity to do so. Cant afford any computer based stuff I think.
I wouldnt care about having a amplitudinal flash for about 3 frames to be sure to catch it...
I heard of people just having two guys with flags in front of a HMI opening up for a very short time..
..and about some jalousie applications for a lamp where you just push a button!?
I'm curios about any ideas..
also, if someone has any recommendations about films with lightning??
I know there are lots of, but just like that nothing really comes to my mind.
THANX FOR YOUR HELP

If you are interested here is a discussion on Lightning Strikes Lamps, which are typically more effective over a large area. http://www.cinematog...B/Lightning.htm

I started shooting with the version David recommended, it seems to working out.
And its a not that expensive tool too!
