I'm about to assist on a project where the DP and director want a shot where they'll start with an extreme close-up of an eye and end in a close-up of the character. I'd like to know what the best option for this type of shot would be:
1) use a long zoom combined with a diopter and zoom out
2) use a prime with a diopter and travel out. keeping things in focus will be challenging to say the least
3) use a macro lens with a diopter and travel out. again, focus
We're aware that the actress will have to be lit to a deep stop if we're going to travel, and that we're likely to cast shadows from us/the camera on her face. A headbrace will also be used.
Since this is a student film, budget is a consideration.
Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!
