Hey All, I shot a short film on Canon C300 but the opening and closing of my film takes place on skype. I would like to do split screen and capture the feel of skype without having to actually use it with 3rd party plugins because I don't want to end up having to deal with weird frame rates and what have you.

 

Does anyone here have any ideas of how they would shoot this? GoPros? Fish eye lens on a DSLR? I'm looking for technical as well as creative advice. 

 

Thanks!

Any of those options work. Personally I'd go go-pro in auto mode so any changes in light and the like are balanced out by the camera, looking more like a skype session.

You could also try taking the HDMI out of a laptop into something like a hyperdeck shuttle and recording it as a pro-res file.
