I have a segment where I’ll be filming a girl driving an early 60’s muscle car (Sting Ray). The focus will be on the driver and the car, and I would like to make it look like she’s driving at night. I don’t know how to produce this effect. Ican’t take it on the road, so that’s out. I do have pro car mounting equipment, and a green screen, and a large warehouse to shoot in. Most of my shots I want to be very tight, so the external contents (ie: street, open road etc.) is not important.
I’ll be using an XL2 (20x and 3x lenses).
Any tips appreciated. Good day.
Go to VideoCopilot.net and watch the tutorials on greenscreening a stationary car and doing post work for day for night. You’ll have to make adjustments for your particular situation, but these are very good starting points.
You could key it and add a fan to blow her hair but, man, I’d sooner just find a Sting Ray you can take out to shoot the scene. You’ll have a large supply of eager beavers if ya hit your local classic car club(s).
