Reflective / Distorting Lens Materials

Recommended Posts

Hoping to find a large flexible mirror board material that expands and contracts for warp distortions (when shooting camera into it). Ideally it can ‘reset’ to a near perfect reflection like a standard mirror

Also considering translucent materials that camera can shoot through for similar distortion effects

Any and all suggestions appreciated! I have already ordered a few easy options on Amazon, but I’m sure there’s better ideas out there 🙂

Did the exact same many years ago for a music video.. shot on film no less !.. we had large mirror surface boards .. some type of plastic I guess.. rectangle shape ..a person at end twisting in opposite directions ..but would always return to rigid/normal reflection  mode by itself.. must still exist .. get as big as you can.. these days it would probably be done in post I would think..

Not sure what your shooting .. but these are very small.. we had much bigger ..and even avoiding  shooting off the board was a pain..   maybe try an art supply / design shop. ?
