  • Filming A Oil Painting Scenes?

    I am not begin to film any of these scenes. I am just getting notes for the future production.

    In my opening scene and a couple other scenes there is a montage of music as the actor is painting a oil painting on a 8x10 canvas. The actor won't know the first thing about painting but somehow I need to pull off that the actor is painting several scenes in a oil painting montage. Anyone know how to pull this off?

    Do you have to show the actual actor painting? perhaps a get an actual artists stand in and paint from behind. Or maybe you could record the oil painting montage separate and mask it in on After Effects. I think it all relies on what shots you use.

      Have the painter behind the canvas, pretending to paint. Place the camera behind the canvas so you can't actually see her hand painting, because she isn't.

      Then get a real painter, and shoot only thier hands painting.

      Edit it together to sell the effect.
