football helmut rig
Posted 04 November 2008 - 11:15 AM
I have a shoot this Thursday and I need a bit of brainstorming help.
One sequence calls for the action of a football game to be seen through the QB's eyes. Its a pretty short sequence so I think hand-holding won't be a problem. We need to see the mask and be able to tell that its a mask.
I am shooting in HD with the panasonic HPX500, fuji HD zoom lens.
I think shortest distance to catch focus is about 1 1/2 -2 feet. The budget doesn't allow for rental of any kind of rig and is pretty tight for purchasing building materials.
I have one or two ideas but I'd love to hear others.

thanks for the replies and ideas. I figured out a rig, I'll take some pics of the set up tomorrow and post them. It actually seems to work pretty well and while its nothing ingenious, its these little things that make this job so much fun.
