I am the DP for a short film that is going to be shot this summer. The script demands some sort of transition from the imagination of a character to reality, with him, in both worlds, just sitting in a bus . My Idea was to pull out from a macro close-up of his eye, in which you can see the last glance of his Imagination (VFX), to about a medium close-up of him sitting there.
I would do it with a 100mm 1:1 Macro Lens on a dolly, but the director thinks it won't look good because it has to be pretty fast and also it will be repeated several times throughout the film and he thinks it won't work because it's always the same shot. The Scriptwriter suggests a zoom-out from macro to medium close-up.
What do you think? Will this work technically and also artistically?
Thanks in advance for your replies
