I was curious if anybody has ideas on how I can pull this off. We need to shoot a scene of our main actor in a church confessional but since we do not have access inside a church, we were thinking that we could shoot it inside any dark enclsoed space, like a closet and turn the actor into a silhouette so it's not obvious we are not in an actual confessional.. any ways to pull that off a silhouette effect with editing in premiere elements 10?
Thanks for you any feedabck!
You can silhouette your actor by lighting behind him and leaving his face unlit.
And any closet could double for a confessional. I used one myself in a short video I made. I just used a shot of the outside of the confessional for the establishing shot -- then cut to the actor inside this confessional. (In my case, though, I had an actor playing the priest rather than the confessor, but the concept is the same.)
Thanks so much Steve!
