Shooting a scene with a Taser - Stroboscopic solutions?
Jared Kovacs posted a topic in LightingHey 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?
Glass foreground distortion object
Ryan Sherwood posted a topic in LightingHi all, I'm looking to achieve a certain effect in camera filtration. This particular piece that uses it well (although a bit heavily): I've used pieces of optical glass to get the distortion effect in a corner or half of the frame, but I'm wondering what options I have to create the effect around the entire frame (vignette). The obvious answer is to use a UV filter with various amounts of smeared vaseline and either hold it in front of the lens, or place it in a matte box tray that can be rotated. Are there any other techniques or glass objects you have found work well? Thanks
