  1. Hi all! I will soon be shooting my first car spec. I'm doing as much research as I can in order to craft a well-polished and beautiful piece, and to understand the logistical requirements and best practices. We're aiming for a very moody, narrative driven off-terrain piece, employing a black arm setup as well as some drone work. Looking for some guidance, tips, advice - what has everyone learned from their car shoots? Looking back, what would you have done differently from the beginning? What technical difficulties did you overlook?
  2. Hi all! I’m DPing a short road trip film next year that takes primarily in a car in the desert. I have some experience shooting in a car before, but would love any advice, input, or words of wisdom that you all may have in regards to doing it right and/or better. Moreover, if any of you have any car scenes from any film or show in mind, I’d love to hear them so I can study them as a reference. This is a low budget indie short film, so any advice on car rigging on a budget is much appreciated. I’m primarily looking at the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera as our main camera as it can easil
  3. Has any one ever lit a car for sunset after its already dark on location? There are a few ways I can think of with large set ups or in a studio but in this case im looking for more of an on the go shoot with my largest light being a 1.2 my concern is that i want to avoid the light looking like a street light . I need to make sure there is enough ambient daylight. any thoughts would be much appreciated. thanks
  4. Hey guys, I'm a 24 year old Cinematographer living in Seven Sisters, London. I recently shot a film called The Mechanic. Its a 60 second doc about Bo Hare, a mechanic and engineer working in rural England, who finds pleasure in the restoration of classic cars. Shot on a Blackmagic Ursa 4K with mixed tungsten and practical fluro lights, i'm a cinematographer, but I directed this as well as shot it. Drone shots on a DJI Inspire 3 Adv. Used vintage nikon AI-S primes to shoot everything, very much recommended if you are on a budget, tons of character, they flare beautifully. There is going t
  5. Hi everyone! This is my first post here on the forums. I saw a video recently on Facebook showcasing the camera cars and carnage in Fast & Furious 5, which is here: https://www.facebook.com/brendan.riel/posts/10209207881700944 It got me thinking, how would one even begin to get a career path like this? It seems it would be someone of high driving skill turned camera car operator. The amount of skill it seems to take for these types of moves is amazing.
  6. Hey guys, So as most of these post start out, my budget is slim to none. Now that that aspect is out there. Im DPing a short that takes place in a car at night. the two characters in the car are being followed because of something they have and they are trying to get away from whoever is following them. Thats where the "chase" aspect comes into play. Its no James Bond chase scene but need to feel like they are trying to ditch the car following them. The short is only 5 mins long and will take place half in urban/city area but they head to a more deserted beach area. The picture attcahe
  7. Hi, I’m looking for a car cinematography specialized DP for a high end SPEC commercial. Green screen experience is required as the featured car will be driven on a large green screen cyclorama. Although a car specialist, this person must be good at lighting people as well. The shoot will take place on July 25-26 in Los Angeles. Non-Union shoot. Pay negotiated upon experience. Please apply only if you specialize in car cinematography. We need to confirm someone ASAP. If interested, please email a link to your reel/portfolio to crewapplications@mzo.tv Thanks.
  8. We are making a short, and we need a scene of two guys talking while driving (at night), I have two desperate questions. How can we rig the camera to the car (outside in front)? If we dont have polarizing filter the shoot will look very bad (because of windows)? We have a car, a black magic and NOTHING ELSE!, if you guys can give ideas on how to solve this the cheapest way, we will be very thankful. Sorry for my english, not my first language.
  9. Hey so I am DPing my second feature, and it's a road trip comedy- and we are considering shooting all the car interior shots on greenscreen as it would save the production money. How should I go about this? I don't have much experience with greenscreen and I would love all the tips and tricks I can get to pull this off so it's Believable. My thoughts My plan is to shoot the car against the green screen outside on a large greenscreen, I'm thinking 20'x40' backed off around 40 or so feet to minimize green spill. I'm planning on shooting east so the sun acts as more of a backlight, and a
  10. Hi everyone. I'm not exactly a student or a new filmmaker, but I am closer to a new filmmaker, than a professional DP, so that's why I'm posting here. Apologies to moderators if it's in the wrong section. I'm filming a low budget car commercial for a small community tv channel and I am wondering what the best options are to film a moving car. I basically want to be able to make the most out of a little to no budget as possible, whether using guerilla style filmmaking or out the box ideas, I need some guidance. I want basically get multiple moving angles of a car driving on the road. My
  11. I'm shooting a night time scene with 2 characters talking inside a car. The car is parked, the windows are wet from a recent rain (but it's not raining anymore). I'm looking for tips and advices for enhancing the water drops. Here is a screen grab from tests I've shot on a 5D a couple of days ago in a studio (we're gonna shoot on location for the actual shoot, with a RED One) with the kind of lighting atmosphere I'm planning to do. No one was really in charge of the rain drops for this test, so we just splashed water on the window before shooting. My first question is ab
  12. I was watching the new show Almost Human on FOX the other day and liked the look of the interior car scenes. What caught my eye at first was the way the windows reflected the outside atmosphere speeding by. It looks as though they are shooting through the car windows on a sound stage with some sort of rear projection (possible big digital projectors) simulating the fast moving background. Guessing they used a polarizer to fine tune the reflections. Any thoughts on how they achieved this look? How did they get the reflections on the car windows? Big massive digital projectors on ea
  13. Hi, I'm working on a short film. All the action takes place during the night. There's several car scene in this movie. The director want a "raw documentary style": natural lightning, no tripod, handheld camera etc... In the car scene, 2 actors are sitting in the front seats, they are talking to each other. The director wants to be able to shoot handheld in front of them. For reference, he shows me a scene from Nicolas Winding Refn's film: "Pusher" (16mm) I don't know exactly how to achieve this kind of shot. Do you have an idea? I was thinking about "cheating" the actors posi
  14. Hi folks I'm shooting a short film in a few weeks and I'm figuring about a car scene with two actor having a dialog while driving, and how I should go about that. First of all, we don't have much of a budget, so a even though a car trailer would be the optimal choice, we can't afford it unfortunately. Any recommendations of how to shoot this? My initial idea was to shoot this infront of a green screen with tracking marks on set, to take advantage of the existing light. By doing so we could use a hand-held camera to add a sense of realism with the background moving (very slightly)
  15. Hey folks, I'm looking to get some advice on car rigs. I'm starting a job in September that calls for tons of car shots so I'd like to see what are some of the best solutions out there. The show will be shot on a Sony f5 with Cooke primes, to give you an idea for weight and size. I was told that SSE Universal Car Mount is the best and easiest to work with. As I've never had any personal experience with it, I would like to get a second opinion before I take the plunge. Has anybody done a job with this rig and how good or bad is it? I was also looking at Mathews Car rigs, they seem
  16. hi. i've been searching threads about techniques, setups, external links and advices on shooting cars on studio, but didn't find anything. how to be fast? what's better: move the camera, the car or the lights? what's a basic setup? :)
