I hope I'm in the right forum to ask these questions, if not, feel free to move the topic!
So next week I'm gonna shoot a short film set in a dry cleaner at night and to create a more dense atmosphere I'm planning to work with a hazer and fogged up windows. Now since I'm a student and started shooting 1.5 years ago, I haven't really had the chance yet to work with haze, my plan for using and utilizing it is to put it in the depth of the shots while "paddling" it away from the talents, to maintain them in the picture as clear as possible while the background is subtly hazed up. Is that the right approach or should I put a bit of haze infront of the actors as well?
The other question is about fogged up windows. In a few other topics I read that Mr. David Mullen recommends Arrid Extra Dry to put some mist on the windows, which sounds awesome! But now that I live in Germany unfortunately I've never seen Arrid Extra Dry in any shop and I'm not sure if it would arrive on time If I ordered it now from the U.S..
So basically my Question here is: Am i simply looking for a powder-based deospray or are there other ingredients that i need to have in mind when gathering some brands for testing it?
