I have a project coming up and the director would like to have some footage reflects on a puddle on a street, something like this:
The angle is quite similar to the image above, except it will be tighter. At the beginning, you can just about to see the edge of the puddle. The camera is then pulling out slowly until suddenly a car drives over the puddle and the reflection is gone, or ruined if you like.
Obviously the reflection of the footage will have to be done in post later. I was wondering what is the best way to shoot something like this so the compositor can easily 'add' the footage on top of it?
Right now, all I can think of is to make sure the puddle doesn't reflect the sky or anything, keep it as dark as possible.
Is there anything else I should look out for?
Thanks in advance.
