I am shooting a commercial on S16mm in a few weeks and we have shots where a man is chasing a spotlight around the set.
We are using a 7 degree spot, and the set is a corridoor (just two parallel walls- no ceiling, approx 8-10 foot high), and we need to create the effect that the spot light is shining from directly above at all times (i.e. so the spot it makes on the floor is as close to perfectly circular as possible).
We were thinking of hanging the spot from a scaff bar via barrel clamps, connected to two high rollers that would be wheeled up and down from OUTSIDE the set walls, but this would take an awful lot of coordination from whoever is moving the high rollers.
We also have a small scaffolding tower at our disposal (approx 8ft). We are shooting in studio.
Any suggestions guys?
