Muzzle flash seen from outside of house

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a way to create a bright, realistic muzzle flash inside a house which will be seen from outside. I was considering using several wireless photo strobes firing at the same time but I'm not sure if the camera will capture that in one frame. I'll be shooting on an Arriflex 16 SRII.


Can anyone recommend a better way to do this?

Make a shutter ...


Big bit of opaque whatever, cut a slit in it, hold board with slit above light, drop it


no light, light, no light


open slit for brighter+longer

cut another slit very nearby for longer but not so brighter


two slits for two flashes




just like a focal plane shutter in a camera
