I am trying to plan for my new short film, and am quite confused on how I can pull off an effect. The short film starts with the protagonist walking into a white room and then turns their back away from the camera once in the centre of the room.
I will then be filming in a maze for the remainder of the film. I want an effect where the person in the white room has a maze grow around them. I would love to see the maze walls pass next to the actor leading them down a long path.
Do you have any idea on how I can pull of this effect? I know what I have said isnt very helpful, so if you want more information give me a shout.

Totally agree with Chris. Do NOT develop the plan for this shoot in your head, and then shoot, expecting it to work as you planned. I've seen shoots like this take days of trial. At best you could have a editing machine on location to check things out as you shoot. At worst you might have to shoot, then run back to the editing bay. Hopefully you can have a rough mock-up of your 3D maze walls to work with. If not, you'll have to rely heavily on your imagination.
