Shooting a scene with a Taser - Stroboscopic solutions?

Recommended Posts

Hey all... I'm shooting a film and we have a few scenes that incorporate a taser being used as a weapon in the story.

I'm shooting with a Panasonic EVA1, not sure if there are any in camera solutions to avoid stroboscopic issues...?

I would love to maybe see the taser in close up at least being triggered.

 

 

If not, then maybe I can stage the action for the taser to be triggered hidden from camera, in that case what lighting gags can I do to sell as a taser?

 

My gaffer suggested 2 things for off screen gags... using those small finger glove lights used at raves and/or getting blue maybe even purple coloured bracelet beads from a hobby shop and having them shift around over a flashlight. Is there a better alternative for creating a compact and caustic lighting effect?
