Joshua Silverlock Posted March 12, 2021 Share Posted March 12, 2021 Hi everyone, I'm prepping to direct a short and the plan is to shoot on film (16mm or 35mm is still tbc). It mostly should be fine, but there is one long steadicam shot written into the script that travels from inside to outdoor london streets. It's meant to be a fairly long journey that covers a good amount of ground (multiple streets). We're not going to be able to shut down streets, or rent lots of heavy duty lighting gear due to budget. I think it will be something of a guerilla affair. Will we be able to get enough light from streetlamps (with careful choreography) and maybe some pushing of the film...? I know we could get away with it on digital but film's a slightly new game to me. Are there any low-budget lighting tips people might be able to suggest? Bottom line I guess is, is this actually possible..? Thanks! Josh. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
