I have a short coming up that has some interesting shots to achieve. The biggest thing I'm trying to achieve is this infinity mirror effect. Example when you have a mirror in front of you and a mirror behind you. It creates the visual effect that has multiple refections as far as your eye can see (tunnel like).
My first thought to achieve this is have one of the mirrors be a two way mirror. This way I can shoot through the two way mirror but the other mirror wont have camera reflections that would have to be removed in post. My thought is to build a wall that has a two way mirror and I can shot behind this wall. Giving me a variety of angles and specific shots we need with out having to worry about the mirror seeing me.
-1. Has anyone used shot with two way mirrors?
-2. Would a prop house have a two way mirror to rent? (for tests)
-3. Anyone have any ideas on how to achieve this
Here are some screen grabs from a test we did today. We just used a mirror hanging on a C-stand to achieve the effect but the goal is to create a way to be behind the mirror and shoot through it to make this happen practically. There are not images for this but did tests shooting through plexi glass that had mirror tint on it. However the quality just was not up to par The affect did not work as well as the actual glass mirror did.
