Question by FAshionPassion: Filmmaking question. What is that kaleidoscope/pirate scope that director’s use sometimes they look through?
it with one eye. I’ve seen people using it on making of documentaries. Sometimes they look like a tube or one binocular, sometimes they look diamond like in shape and the smaller part of the diamond is the part the director’s look through.
Anyway so what is it, and what is it for (night vision or having that blue look in Underworld is what I bet my friend on)? Please have more than 5 sentences!
what is it called
Answer by justinisloco
Its just to test lighting…
It’s usually for the Director of Photography, and the Director determines weather the lighting is sufficient (outdoors) or they want to add extra lighting to the set
