I'm shooting a student film and need to create a lightning effect.
The Magic Gadgets Shadowmaker flicker box is advertised as having a lightning effects programmed into it.
Has anyone used this effect, and do you have video footage of it that you could post?
Any advise on this would be helpful. The budget is too small to get Lightning Strikes or anything like that, and we're shooting on the Red so I don't want the rolling shutter from Atomic 3000's. Looking into a shutter effect with metal shutters, but if the flicker box works, I'd prefer that method.
Thanks in advance.
