I'm shooting a short film on B&W 35mm (this is a strict decision of the director and I- it's set in the 1960s are we feel that shooting film is crucial to this story). We have quite a few scenes in a 'beach house' set where the windows look out onto the ocean. We will need to digitally project an ocean outside the windows but my concerns are -
how do we get the brightest image so that the outside is overexposed than the inside? I know I will have to shoot wider open so the projector overpowers the light sources inside.
we are thinking of putting up a giant white muslin around the outside of the windows and doing something similar to what Claudio did on Oblivion.
the only problem being that we can't afford 21 projectors. Perhaps only two or three.
Does anyone have any better ideas for this? Is front projection the best way to go?
Thank so much.
