I am in need of some advice as to how to show 400 feet as a short distance on video. I have been contacted by an attorney to show 400 feet as "not so long" on video.
I cannot use any DOF techniques, and I have to keep the lens as "close to the normal eye" as possible. If the images appear to be distorted or manipulated in any way, the video will not be allowed as evidence.
I also have to show all of my footage as raw footage.
Does anyone have any ideas as to how to show 400 feet as a short distance? My only thought is to show it in comparison to everything else on the property. For instance, if the land is 50 acres, show the 400 feet from a very far distance away, in comparison to the 50 acres...
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
How do I show 400 feet as a short distance? Please help!

Sounds about right. If you can't use a long lens then diminish the distance by overwhelming it with more screen area by getting the shot from a greater distance... what you said. Or tell the lawyer that you can't cheat physics.
