I am trying to shoot a scene in a bedroom where the character is lit at night by street light coming through a window. 

 

I want the effect on the characters face to make it seem that there is rain on the window.

 

Have tried a couple of different things but  haven't been able to get the look I'm after.

 

Ive attached a reference image to the look and effect I'm going for witch might make it a bit clearer. 

 

Any suggestions would be great!

 

Thanks

You need a very sharp light, like a 1K fresnel with the fresnel removed, far enough to get as small a point source as possible. Then whatever is making the pattern the pane of glass, has to be as close as possible to the actor. Then you have to get the right sort of water pattern to spray on the glass.
