How to film in the backseat of a car?

I'm shooting a short and I want to do a french over inside my car, what I'm asking is tips and tricks to get good footage without looking too much handheld.

Thank you.

If you're shooting at night, you can always try doing poor-man's process. You could easily get a very nice, locked-down shot that way. If you're shooting during the day, I've had pretty good luck in the past just using a small, collapsed tripod as a sort of monopod that I set between my legs on the back seat. If the road you're on is relatively smooth, you won't get a particularly handheld look. The handheld movements should be fairly subtle and floaty, not jittery and overly handheld.
