I'm a first time director and have a short film requiring a pretty important scene that involves the two actors to be eating at a table while having a discussion. How does this work with the food etc. I've heard of the "spit bucket" between takes but is there another way without using that. Do they just fake eating, hard when the eating is so important to the scene. Thinking of selecting specific lines to actually "eat" on, or just have them eat naturally and shoot? Some help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
So, I just got a gig where I'm shooting a sushi chef making sushi, and there is mainly focus on showing the food. There will be a lot of close-ups and macro shots. I believe we are going for a high-key type of lighting. There is some ambient lighting from downlights in the ceiling, but it's far from enough. I have access to fresnels and dinos. Would something like what I have sketched down work, or should I go about it another way? Keep in mind the 85mm might be moved from side to side a bit. Thanks!
