I have a shoot planned for this weekend. The weather is supposed to be very overcast and rainy. While it is an Int. shoot, there are very large bay windows in the location. This is not the look I wanted. closing the shades is not an option as 1. it is a light source 2. they need to be open for the story.

What are some tricks to hide the rain? any experiences like this ?


best,
Dalton

You could tent the windows to keep rain hitting them and under that tent use what ever lights you are using to key the scene you are shooting .

On a short film shoot with a HDW750, we had to use 216 on the windows because the ground floor room was supposed to be a 1st floor bedroom and we were pointing towards the windows. However, on the day it also poured with rain outside.

The bay windows covered with the 216 were evenly lit by a couple of 2.5k HMIs and give an effective bright exterior look to the room. Obliviously totally burnt out, but it did look real on camera.
