Hello,
I'm working on a HDV piece with a student and they want to do homage to Jurassic park. They want a shot that incorporates water rippling in plastic cups in a similiar way as those in the movie on the dashboard of the ford explorer.
I've done some research and have experimented a little, but I'm just not getting it. It's supposed to involve vibration from a guitar string attached under the dash? Does anyone have more specifics? What gauge string or how it's attached? I'm guessing the shape and amount of water in the plastic cups probably have something to do with it as well?
Thanks for your insights and time.

If memory serves it was one of the larger guitar cords, though I am not sure about tightess. the shape of the class is probably more important than the amount of water in it, notice the glass was conical, which probably helped to carry the ripples through it.
