hide a camera
Posted 08 September 2009 - 06:39 PM
Hello, I'm a filmmaker in Egypt looking for ways to hide a camera while still getting high quality material. The type of filming I might do with it, is interviews with criminals or thieves, or expose material such as in the doc on www.youtube.com about the medical waste recycling facility.
Do any of you know a way to hide a camera for cinema verite that still preserves quality and production value?

Other than that: pinhole cameras. Low quality, distortet pictures but probably the right thing to use here.
What you are planning does sound a bit dangerous. Make sure you know what you are doing. And get someone local on board who has experience with this kind of "camera work" (both operating and installation wise). You don't want the electronics to f*** up the shoot in mid conversation due to a short circuit, do you? (Brian De Palma's Film "Blow Out" comes to mind...).
Also, have you thought about what will happen in case the camera is discovered? You'd better have some escape plan ready for this scenario...
P.S.: Funny pseudonym...
