Student Film Lighting Technique


Recommended Posts

I am DPing for a student film. The director is shooting the diner scene from Heat. I have been asked to make the antagonist look as though something is moving just under the skin. We are shooting on the Sony F900 HD camera on a sound stage. Any thoughts on either lighting or camera techniques to pull this off? Thank you.

Well, you could add a very subtle vertigo shot to it, if you have the means. They did a similar thing in the scene in "Goodfellas" when De Niro and Liotta meets at a diner at the end of the movie. A 2-shot with a very slow pull in and a slow zoom out.
