Hey all, I'm curious to hear if anyone is willing to share their experience if they've been on long camping/working trip where they were to shoot on a small boat going down a river...here are the conditions : - on a small chase boat going down a river. The river has both calm segments and not so calm segments when going down a few canyons! - weather temp: mild during the day and cooler at night/ water temp very cold - camera: Sony fs7 + canon lenses + shape handles ... basic - chasing a hand made canoe for 25 days , with one lunch stop and camping at night - two camera crew + assistants + director + sound ( second camera and team in their own boat ) here are my questions: - have you been in a situation like this where you worked for hours day in day out? what's your advice on being more efficient at work ? - have you ever had to wear a drysuit for long hours? day in day out while shooting? do you have any advice on that? how do layer properly as we start in a cool morning and shoot the whole day under the sun and into the night? - have you used a spray deflector on a handhold rig? - how do you best go about keeping your gear and the camera on your shoulder dry? thanks all!
I'm in my final year of university creating a 10 minute short film. Our final scene includes a camping a scene with a father and a son, as we're filming at night time we're planning to only shoot with a single light source from a standard camping light, which will be placed just in front of the two actors. Will this be an effective way to shoot this scene? Is there anything else that we can do to make sure that the lighting of this scene looks good? We're filming just by a lake in the middle of a forest so exterior lighting from other sources will be very limited. Any suggestions??
