Shutter Island Paper Scene
on Dec 3, 2010 at 8:10:12 pm

I'm doing a movie that has a girl in a dream-like hallucination. She is seeing inanimate objects in her room moving about. In one scene, paper flies off her desk and floats around the room. How do I get paper to fall down slowly and erraticly similar to the concentration camp scene in Shutter Island? I would like to see the paper falling like snow flakes. What is the simplest and most efficient way to do this?

Thanks for the help in advance.

Best,
-joe

Grab a bunch of paper and drop it from above.
I would suggest you would probably want to shoot at a somewhat higher frame rate than you plan to deliver it.
You'll have to experiment on weight/thickness of your paper stock.
