Hi there,

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.

My references:

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!!

*NOTE: This is similar to a post I made in General Discussion, but I figured it would make it easier to split the original post up and get specific questions answered in more appropriate forums. I hope that doesn't violate the rules.
