First time here, so I hope I posted this in the right place. I'm developing a 10-12 minute short and I need some advice about creating its look. The short intends to feature a lot of fog/smoke atmosphere for its environments and could include large stretches of area.
I would like to know what kind of machine I would need to create this kind of heavy smoke? Roughly how much does the amount of material needed to produce that much smoke cost? And recommended lighting plans for the smoke? As well as other advice on the nitty-gritty of filming with heavy smoke.
Also, if anyone knows how they lit City of Angels (kinds of lights, set up, achieving the sodium vapor look), and/or how to recreate the lighting for the FMV cut-scenes of Silent Hill 2 in real life, that'd be really helpful.
The Crow: City of Angels (1996)
Silent Hill 2 (2001)
Particularly between 4:00 to 6:00. I realize its a video game but it depicts what I'm aiming for.
Thank you all so much!!
