Hey all... I'm shooting a film and we have a few scenes that incorporate a taser being used as a weapon in the story. I'm shooting with a Panasonic EVA1, not sure if there are any in camera solutions to avoid stroboscopic issues...? I would love to maybe see the taser in close up at least being triggered. If not, then maybe I can stage the action for the taser to be triggered hidden from camera, in that case what lighting gags can I do to sell as a taser? My gaffer suggested 2 things for off screen gags... using those small finger glove lights used at raves and/or getting blue maybe even purple coloured bracelet beads from a hobby shop and having them shift around over a flashlight. Is there a better alternative for creating a compact and caustic lighting effect?
Hey folks, been lurking around here for little over a year now. This is my first post looking for insight, not sure if this fits here or should be elsewhere. I'll be shooting on a really low budget (~25k) feature in Mississippi this fall. I'm located and have been working primarily in Arizona, and neighboring states here and there. We are looking for a camera package and naturally, we don't have the money to pay full rate or even half rate. I'm not expecting to shoot on anything high end. I would just like to put together a reliable package that is able to produce the images I'm looking for. Who/Where is around Ms/La for camera rentals? What can I do (as dp) to get a package with the budget restrictions? Also is there any benefit in trying to acquire a g&e package through the same place?
