Day For Night Test

This evening Brock, Angie, and I did some Day For Night (DFN) tests with the new Panasonic DVX100B camera. DFN is a common technique use in filmmaking when it is impractical to actually light and shoot at night, but the scene must have the look of night. While it is very common, there wasn't a comprehensive tutorial available online. So, I cooked up my own special recipe from all of the research I could find. I'll post that soon.

PS - The tests are in preparation for Wildlifeless, Brock's new action/adventure film.

I would say, from these shots, it is completely passable. Nicely done!

There's definately a couple of adjustments that need to be made. Josh mentioned bouncing some light into the subject, as well as adjusting the image to the editing monitor. I do have to say that it looks good on my computer though... Josh has me sold.
