Hello, all! We are preparing to shoot a film out in West Texas (in the middle of the desert) soon. Our concerns are primarily with the heat (temperatures are expected to be a high of 101F) and bathrooms (as we will be far away from any nearby restroom). Additionally, we will be filming with RED cameras, and have a cast/crew of roughly 15-20 people. We have it in our plan to bring tents, massive fans, and water in bulk for breaks. And, we anticipate taking a 3-4 hour break during midday (when temperatures peak). However, we will have a lead actor in a fully black, long-sleeved/long-legged costume, plus another actor in a full body armor suit (a prop robot suit). Would any one care to share some advice, given past experiences with filming in similar situations? Thanks! John
I am the Cinematographer for my senior thesis class in college and our movie takes place all out in the desert. The two characters are walking at night and I was planning on using mini brutes bounced into Muslin for a side/ambient light. I was wondering what else would be good to use like source 4s to light up spots of the background? Or PAR cans hidden in the background? And should I make the back light a different color to have color contrast? The characters then find an abandoned gas station with a flickering light and I was wondering what flicker box do people usually use and get the best effect from? Thank you for all who post and read!
