Hello,
I am about to shoot a short film in next month or so.
We are shooting on XDCam PDW-700, Pro 35 with primes, 1080, 25P. One location shoot with 2 people having a conversation at a table.

To isolate the actors I'd like 3 "walls", 2 black and 1 white. (black behind the actors, white to their one side). To the question.

I want the white wall to be completely "white" burned out . We really don't have a budget for this shoot and I am thinking of using simply a white cloth (3m tall, 8 m wide), slightly shiny (like satin) light through it from behind as evenly as possible. Overexpose and go from there.

The first test I did turned out ok but any suggestions as to in-camera-setting would be appreciated. Knee, using the DCC, clipping the whites, gamma.

Thank you in advance.
