BURNING WINDOW

PROBLEM: While John was directing a recreation that involved an apartment fire LAFD issued a citywide fire ban. No flame bars or open flame of any kind.

SOLUTION: Buy using a partial mirror (beam splitter) from his front projection rig, John was able to reflect the image of flames from a monitor into the camera. By adding a flicker effect on the side of the building and movie smoke my team created the effect of a burning building. This was an in-camera effect and went straight to post with no further enhancements.
