Wide & CU at the same time
Posted 20 March 2014 - 08:48 PM
The director, understandably, wants to shoot a cowboy and a tight CU simultaneously to increase the number of good takes we might get.
The lines that have to be said need to be with this person staring into the lens, which creates a problem when there are 2 cameras rolling at the same time.
I suggested using a mirror 3D rig but with different lenses (like a 32mm + 150mm) to get the effect of both eyes into the camera(s).
I won't get the chance to test it beforehand (on another job and traveling the previous day to this gig).
The local rental house has secured 2 alexas XT, a complete set of master primes from 25 to 150 plus a 24-290 optimo. The 3D rig available is a studio one from P&S technik.
Has somebody tried this approach and run into problems I can't foreseen?

I've never tried it, but in my mind it should work. I am not 100% sure if you can put both cameras on the same axis on a 3d rig, but even if you get it really close, it should work.
