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.
A few dolly shits would have been nice at some parts, but I really like the lighting and flat tone of the image. It really puts you in the mood of the film. Some of the things I would nit pick - watch your sound. When you change scene, the sound gets noisy/grainy all of a sudden. A fade would do...
It's a giant lens shade, just like the smaller ones you put on your lens. It also allows filters like the others have said.
Not only is it a better option from a lens shade, it also looks way cooler and more professional to.
I'm assuming you mean like the sunbeam through the leaves, casting streaks of light in the misty air with particles floating around, quite a mystical scene type-thing.
Basically if you get a sunny day, you can grab a fog machine and blow a bit of fog around and you should get some streaks. If...
I'm planning on shooting a car travelling down a road at night. It's a country road, and the only light I would be naturally getting is from the moon and the car headlights. It will be tracking, so the camera will be on a car following in front of the car being filmed.

I'm thinking about how to go about this, but a the start of my film I want there to be a ton of momentum.

So there will be three different scenes at the same time - Agents...
It's a real shame that film is going out of fashion. Even if it is digitally projected, it is much warmer and less perfect than digital. I remember reading somewhere that Jackson's frame rate for the Hobbit (48fps) was a bad choice because it was too life like.
Nice to meet you. I was wondering what sort of stuff you use to compose music?
It's an area I'm really starting to get into. I'm saving up for a few VST's for Cubase (starting with Essentials, I think)!
So you want to get started? Lets go.
First off, take your budget. Anything under $1000 will not be enough for a decent DSLR kit, so you might want to consider that. If you do have the money, then continue reading. If there are any terms you don't understand Google them!
So uh, I wan't sure where to put this, but I really wanted to share it with you guys so where better then the cinematography section!
Basically this story is one of two really annoying (ignorant + arrogant) clients directing a singing club.
So I turn up to a auditorium as that was our setting...
