Anyone want to moon me?

Would anyone out there happen to have about 4 seconds of footage of a creepy full moon (possibly with fast moving clouds in front) that they'd be willing to let me use in an upcoming "no profit" project?

It's a long shot...I know...but doesn't hurt to ask.

John--

I needed a similar shot for a doc I was working on. I could either get the moon, and clouds would vanish, or I could get the clouds and the moon got totally burned out. I wound up opting for the moon.

Maybe you could shoot some clouds at dusk and composite them over the shot of the moon. If you want to try it, let me know.

Jay,

I'm game to try anything. The problem with shooting the moon in Tokyo is too much light pollution. I live right smack in the middle of downtown...full of lights. And haven't had a chance yet to go out of the city to shoot a full moon.

Thanks, Jay!

I only need about 5 seconds worth. It's a cut away shot to help establish the blue light that will be pouring in through the window.

I appreciate the help!

Jeff - Ha! Now I can say I've been thoroughly mooned. Reminds me of the time...well never mind.

Jay - Thanks again! The footage is perfect. See how great these forums are? You ask for a hand and they give you the moon.
