Silhouette and Rim Lighting
I'm shooting a scene on Sunday where my lead character has given a presentation to a room full of people and he finishes, standing with his arms raised, looking bit like Jesus! I'm planning on getting a low angle shot from behind him, showing a rim lit silhouette with a little glow on the audience.
My thoughts were to have a projector (already in the scene) in front of him, with his head blocking the light and an LED Litepanel, slightly in front of him on each side, to add a bit more rim.
Does anybody have any thoughts and/or tips on other ways to do this? I'll have a 3 LEDs, 3 Redheads and a 200w Dido at my disposal.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
