Shooting Splitscreen - frame match

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm shooting a commercial with split screen. One side is shot in London, the other side is shot in Pakistan.

 

Two different stories are happening in the two frames and only in some shots they frames actually need to match (the character of the left side of the frame will touch the hand of the character of the right side of the frame).

 

I thought of two ways of shooting this:

 

1- using on both cameras (left and right) an aspect ratio of 4:3 and then match them together in post into a composition of 16:9

 

2- using in both cameras an aspect ratio of 16:9 but taping the lens so that would show me only half of the frame

 

Do you think these are valid option or would you go for something else?

 

 

Another question is regarding camera resolution:

 

I'm shooting in London with a Canon C300 in Full HD. In Pakistan instead, they are shooting it with a Sony a7 mark II in 4K

 

Would it create complications when it comes to put them together?

Thank you!

Alessandro
