I am planning to film two people talking as they drive. I have been thinking about it for a while but haven't done it yet.I am planning on using a Nizo Compact camera (sync is not an issue as dialogue will be dubbed) I will use a polorizing filter, the camera will be clamped to the front of the bonnet for a medium two shot, but I need to know how I can film a close up side shot from the passenger and driver seat.

Would the camera have to be set at the wide angle setting? And will focussing be an issue? Can you have a camera clamped to the the side window?

Has anyone done this using Super 8? If filming a stationery car how can I give the illusion that it is moving?
