Shooting with fake rain, water towers, etc
Manu Delpech posted a topic in General DiscussionI think I asked someone about this here but I can't find a trace of it. Basically, I'm going to have a big scene in a film involving rain at night in like a residential street. I've tried to find as much as I could about it but I figured I'd ask here and might gleam some good advice from folks who have experience with that. I plan to shoot the whole film very wide, long shots, few cuts. Which I guess will be a plus since there will be no use of any cranes, it'll be a lot of dolly work. So I don't plan to frame the action above a certain height, let's say a little above the height of a pick up truck. This means we probably won't need super high water towers. Now, what should I absolutely know or be aware of before shooting a scene like this?
Fake rain on windscreen of moving vehicle
axxonn posted a topic in Visual Effects CinematographyHello everybody, I'm new in this forum :-) I'm organising the making of a short film and, for a scene inside a lorry, I need it to look like it's raining outside. Browsing the web I've bumped into this topic, which I found really interesting. I've read that a possible solution (when you don't have a water source) is to use a watering can and connect one or two garden hoses with sprinkler rings. I though that then I could spray the water from the trailer over the front of the truck... the wind should then do the rest.... but apparently watering cans don't work that well, because they rely on gravity. Does anyone have any experience with this, or have any other suggestions? Thanks PS. The lorry would actually go downhill for the whole scene and the rain would have to last for about one minute.
