These are scenes from a story re-enactment that I am shooting for the local Caterpillar equipment dealer. This was my first attempt at creating artificial rain using sprinkler heads and a water truck. It's tricky of course, because you can't get your lighting anywhere near the rain, unless it's protected or waterproof. I shot this with a Canon XH-A1 and Letus Ultimate, using a Tokina 28-70 f2.8 ATX lens. John Bentley ran sound and Jenn Todoroff and I produced and directed it. I modified a bunch of sprinkler heads before finding the right combination to create large water drops so they show up better on camera. It also takes a lot of water to get even a 15ft. diameter circle of hard rain. One garden hose will not do it. I used a HOLT CAT water truck. This was shot at 1/24 sec. (opening scene) and 1/48 sec. - 1920x1080x24p. Shutter speed and lighting angles greatly affect how well the rain shows up. Editing and color grading were done in Premiere using Cineform HD.
