I need an exterior WIDE shot with rain. My low teach approach is to use a water can in front of the lens, and side light to highlight my fake rain (with shallow DOF in the background) to obscure the details. Also, to have my extras carry umbrellas.

Does anyone have a better, more realistic approach (besides waiting for it rain) than this technique?

Nope. That's exactly how I'd do it. Let the lens hide the short FX.

Make sure to wet down the street/area a bit as well so as to help sell it.
