Is it possible to shoot a short sunrise scene during magic hour? is it a possible cheat?
Sure, just have everyone walk and talk backwards and film it in reverse...
No, seriously, it's done all the time. The opening of "The Astronaut Farmer" was a sunset faked for sunrise. We shot the coverage in reverse order so that the sun seemed to get higher as the shots progressed.
In theory, sunsets tend to be redder and cloudier than sunrises due to the build-up of smog and humidity, etc. but most people just notice that the sun is lower on the horizon in a movie.
