I'm looking for a way to create a bright, realistic muzzle flash inside a house which will be seen from outside. I was considering using several wireless photo strobes firing at the same time but I'm not sure if the camera will capture that in one frame. I'll be shooting on an Arriflex 16 SRII.

Can anyone recommend a better way to do this?

Thanks.

You could do it by simply having a very bright light on in the room with someone covering up the front (or getting shutters) with a solid and popping it off for each shot quickly.

Make a shutter ...

Big bit of opaque whatever, cut a slit in it, hold board with slit above light, drop it

no light, light, no light

open slit for brighter+longer
cut another slit very nearby for longer but not so brighter

two slits for two flashes

etc...

just like a focal plane shutter in a camera
