Documentary w/ ONLY existing Practicals
Posted 26 February 2012 - 10:51 PM
I'm not asking for a step by step (which would be ridiculous). What I am hoping to get is tricks that I may not have thought of, to get useable footage. I'm hoping some of you folks who are smarter than I am may have been in similar situations and figured out interesting ways to make the footage not suck.
A thousand thanks in advance...

Bring a china ball with daylight photofloods and some incandescents with a stinger and paper tape. Hardly takes any space and this way at least you'll have a nice soft key for interviews. Use existing practicals for background and maybe even cheat some for rim light.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to bring any of that stuff in and will HAVE to rely on existing practicals and 5 in 1s. That's what makes the whole thing a bit difficult.
So those pop-up reflectors, in combination with fast glass and a FS100 (aka. queen of the darkness) are your best bet.
