Hello,
I'm preparing to shoot a music video.
I have an idea for a shot where you can see infinite space behind the object filled with colored or colorless mist.
The reference shot is from the new Bladerunner trailer.
My goal is to place a car on the foreground like it's in the middle of nowhere.
Most of the shots will be inside the car but I need to sustain this look in the windows without green screen.
How I can achieve that on a tight budget?
Would it be easier to accomplish shooting outside or indoors? With dark or light background?

Many thanks in advance!

Could be done in front of a large white cyclorama with rather dense fog. You can try backlighting it with rows of PAR64 or Jumbos.

Might be also possible in a warehouse-like space without windows, but it will require more even and powerful backlight to hide the unwanted background behind overexposed fog.

Easier to accomplish inside.

 

If you're planning on using colored/colorless mist, then fog/haze is your secret sauce.

 

I wrote a short piece on developing this look for a fog scene here: http://www.cinematog...=70937&p=477755

 

Same idea can be applied, but with no pool. I even did exactly what you described on a feature just recently using the above method with a car in a small warehouse.
