LOL!

ANyway, to keep things looking topically, I'd keep a spray bottle with me and soak everyone down for each shot. That'll keep it looking humid and sweaty.

Mix coffee grinds in with the spray bottle and that'll make the sweat really gritty.

Aw go whole hog. Pour ants on them.

Just like a windex bottle? Good one. Once again, if anyone knows any screw-in or 4X4 filters that would help, let me know what they are. I'm thinking of dropping the black level two notches in camera (someone said this would be like setting black at 0 versus 7.5 IRE)--this should give it a slightly more filmy look, as well as making it a little grittier. I was thinking a ground fog would be cool. One of our guys has a fog machine, but I don't think it's battery operable. Any easy cheap suggestions?

Frank G. had a suggestion of going into a Chinese store and buying joss sticks. Incense sticks. They should be fairly safe to use. They don't flame up and can provide smoke. Just add more.

Don't use a Windex sprayer, that's lighweight stuff. Go to Home Depot and pick up their cheapest insecticide sprayer for about $20. It'll hold 5 gallons of water and will be able to douse your poor actor and all the foliage around him.

Will the incense smoke hurt my camera?

I doubt it. I wouldn't bathe my camera in it for extended periods but I doubt it would leave residue that couldn't be wiped off with a cloth later.

Josh:

A fogger will help a lot. There are battery operated units available and also ones called Hudson sprayers that use a hand pump.

Filter-wise, try white Promists in strengths between 2-4 for maximum effect (these are actually just called Promists, as opposed to Black Promist). They will give you a glow around the highlights that will help simulate the hot humid feel.

the promists are drop in or screw on filters? Also, the hand pumped fogger, how much does it run and where can you find one?
