Create Tear/Water drop

Hello!

I was just browsing through half the internet in search of tutorials without really finding what I am looking for.

My footage is a close up of a cell phone and I want to create a tear drop which falls onto it. I am sure such a thing has been done before and I was wondering if someone might have some hints for me how to do that.

Thanks,
Bernhard

...reshoot it, and drop a droplet of water on it? This is the best solution. By far.

Shoot a droplet of water falling onto a greenscreen, and do your best to key out all but the highlights/shadows created by the drop?

Get a 3D animator to animate the fluid simulation for you?

Depending on the part of the phone where the drop falls, there will also be refraction issues.

Video CoPilot realistic raindrop tutorial comes to mind.
