Hi,

Laz told me to get a matte black surface to shoot a candle flame against so that I can screen it into my composition. I have gone to whitcoulls, the warehouse, and warehouse stationary. They either don't know what the heck I'm talking about or don't have it.

Does anyone know where I can obtain one? Any household objects that'd work or at least suffice?

I have to shoot at night because it's the only time my room is dark enough, right now my only solution will be to hang a black sheet over my TV and film against that. But I doubt it will suffice =/ And I only have a few nights left to do it in! Can't do it at school because lighting a flame inside a place with smoke alarms isn't a appropriate idea apparently ;)

Black velvet is the best, but hard to find. A black sheet should do you fine though.

Hey man,

I randomly stumbled upon this here, no idea if it might be helpful to you but it seems quite recent so you might get in contact with the guy who made it... I think it looks really convincing!

Black sheet was a fail. It lit up. Going to try once again though and just see how it comes out =/

Thanks for the link, hopefully I wont need it, but it's always good that it's there if I do.

Second try had much more success, but video camera dies in 20 mins and I have no charger since it's borrowed.
