Tips needed for practical lightning
I'm trying to come up with an on set lightning effect. Not a digital effect. Like in horror films, when the lightning flashes on the actor's faces. That sort of thing. I'm pretty sure in the old movies it was done with a spot like and some sort of shutter system. If anyone has a link to an article on how it was done, or any ideas how to recreate the effect on a set. My budget is limited, but not non-existent. So I can spend a little on lights and equipment... but i can't splurge on a $1000 light set up. Any help is appreciated.
