I'm shooting a music video soon that involves a lot of colored backgrounds.
The directors biggest reference is this: (The music video is literally just a copy, so the video roughly shows the size of our shots as well)
I'm almost positive the reference video used colored seamless for their backgrounds but I was hoping to you use a series of S60Cs to light a white cyc behind talent. I figured it would be quicker and easier to change color via wireless DMX rather than swapping out seamlesses all day. We also will have the chance to do some effects if we want to.
I also wanted to a chance to use Skypanels since I haven't had the opportunity yet.
My concern is the output of Skypanels at high saturation, production can only afford 3-4 Skypanels and I'm not sure they will cut it, the talent is on raised pedestal/lazy susan thing so falloff as the cyc curves at the bottom is now only a minor concern. I also feel that running up against low output I'll have less separation possible between talent and the cyc, a bit of contamination is okay but not really much more than what you'd get from reflected light of a seamless.
Do you think I should just use some seamless and not waste the money on the Skypanels? Or will they even have enough output to begin with...I'm torn.
