Filming Blinds/Shutter event?

I have been asked to produce a short film on a blinds event.

I am very weary as I am pretty new to the scene and the last time I took some footage which blinds where prominent it did not come out well at all.

Anybody have any tips / settings or tutorials that may help?

Equipment: TM900, AC-90, Slider, monopod etc.

If the blinds are in situ you are going to have backlight problems. Go full manual and open your iris to expose on the blinds, you are going to nuke the backgroud. Better still, use lights so you have control over the exposure.
