A client has asked I help out with shooting timelapse (in the kitchen) for a cooking show pilot. We will be shooting with a PD170 or DVX100A, which I have experience with....but not shooting for timelapse.
In this case, I'm suggesting letting the camera roll and speeding it up in post. The client is concerned about the footage looking too choppy, so I suggested shooting realtime and speeding up in post. Is this a good idea in this application?
My next question is about shutter speed...
Has anyone played with changing the shutter speed to change the "look" of sped up footage?
I'm asking because the shoot is coming up in 2 days and I don't have a camera at my disposal to test (what else is new?)
Hoping someone out there has tried or experimented with this!
