theaterspots on car commercial
Posted 25 October 2012 - 06:14 AM
I would love to have some advice on the following problem.
I'm going to shoot a car commercial next month. It will be one long technocrane movement with decor elements that will move etc but basically we' ll make a 180° around 3 cars. The client would love to have this theater spotlight feel. Normally I would just use as my main light put a huge grid cloth above the cars to have the nice reflections.
My question is, to get those nice beams of light and circle around the cars from the theaterspots and still keep the nice soft reflections without having the hard spots of the theater lights is there anyway I can combine those 2 atmospheres? I was maybe thinking in doing it with the gridcloth above and later in post composite the beams above the cars and the cirkels around the cars.
Remember, cars will move towards camera at the end and camera will move to.
If anyone needs more info to help me out let me know.

Multiple round overhead sources of different colors would help your theme.
I would probably enhance the spotlight effect in post using a vignette.
