underwater lighting with green/blue screen
Posted 26 July 2009 - 02:28 AM
my questions are,
1. which color(blue or green screen) would be my best pick ? the inside of the tank is painted in light blue and the model will be dressed in white/light color.
2. there is no underwater lighting equipment available from where I am shooting the commercial. so all the lighting is coming from outside the pool which makes it a bit more problems for me. I am planning to put a 20'x20' blue/green screen in the long end and have the model maybe about 12'-15' in front of camera. I am hoping to use wider lens and have the model as close to the camera as possible to get less kick off the blue/green screen. i am planning to light the blue/green screen with a 4k Arri HMI X light and have a 6k HMI par as a back light for the model. then putting 1 or 2, 6'x6' ultra bounce in the water off camera and using another 4k HMI pars to bounce key light for here face. this is my best guess as all the lights has to come from outside the pool but wasn't sure if that will work. any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks.

ya i agree with peter i know it sounds like renting can be expensive but if you go to the right house you cant get good stuff for cheap it would be worth the 100 bucks or so. im not sure where you are located but if your around the LA area go to Wooden Nickle they have good prices
thanks everyone for your input. can i do think green is the best choice, but there are a lot more issues i have to deal with such as the spill from the fabric itself. unfortunately, I am shooting the commercial in taiwan which having all the necessary equipment i need shipped over is not an option for me. ( I got quotes from Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand, but the cost just doesn't fit in our budget. our budget is only 70K USD) but I really appreciated all of your help.
