I have a shoot coming up where I am DPing as well as production design/set construction (no budget blues).
Part of the shoot is in Santa's workshop.
We have a dolly in to the scene and the director wants to see Santa in his shop through a window that the camera moves through without cutting then lands on our "2" mark (Kinda like that opening shot of Citizen Kane though the window)
Anyway I'm not really a carpenter or set designer but I need to make this work.
Here is what we'd like the end result to look like: http://www.mydisguis...t-c10032316.jpg
---sorry about the link but I can't seem to attach any pictures.
Any way I am going to be keying from the left from an implied window using a 5k through unbleached muslin, the letting everythig fall off.
Now worst case scenario:
1.we don't have money for the 5k and have to use smaller units...
2. I have minimal frunds for building materials
3. I get a gaffer only on the day of the shoot and we also need to light a completely different scene where we try to emulate a snowy field(we're in FL)
4. I have only myself and my 2 hands righty and left-fellow to get this construction done.
As you can tell I feel a bit overwhelmed and am seeking any advice or suggestions.

Some screen grabs:
granted these are low-res...
...wonder if this would be better suited to the "in production" section...
