I would love some help from you guys in choosing the right lens for achieving this framing in exact the same way. We're using a Canon T3i for the filming. The class is a compositing and visual effects class. The final image would be cropped to achive the correct aspect ratio in Fellowship. The model will be shot in front of a green screen.
To be specific, any ideas how distant from the subject I would have to be, and what focal depth (if I can use my zoom). I'm not a great cinematographer, I'm actually the one shooting the scene by default since I'm the only one in our compositing class with the camera. ;-) Not too worried about the aperture etc. because the goal is to colour correct the footage and add glow, etc. The main concern is getting a good, useful shot.
