We also added a fog machine into the mix. Fog is fantastic for adding a bit of drama and mystery (and hiding all of the junk at the back of the set ) but it takes a while to clear, and you need to shoot fast when the fog escapes onto the set. Another reason to have the rest of the shot dialled in beforehand.
Then we moved on to a sequence involving fog with added flour, coloured with food dye, and finally to one involving a lot of flour and a lot of movement. Each of these sequences was messier than the last, with the last set really messing up Keira’s hair – so you need to think about the order you do these things – once you’ve covered the model in flour, it can’t be undone 🙂
