DIY TIP: Fire Flicker Effect

10/15/2015 ISO 1200 Magazine 0 Comments


Ok it's not that spooky... but if you're gonna film some ghost stories, you need a campfire. Here's a quick DIY tip to get the look without actually setting anything ablaze. Seems basic, but even big Hollywood productions do it!

What You'll Need:
- Desk lamp or clamp light (We use these: http://low.es/1k5nn9V)
- A dimmable incandescent light bulb
- CTO gel or an orange, non-flammable material
- Cheap light dimmer (we used this http://low.es/1LOzft6)

Alternately, Lite Panels have dimmers built in. They use the Astra 1x1 panels with CTO gel inserts, and have had good experiences: http://bit.ly/1VSTp4Bs
