The challenge of filming a laser head without destroying the camera sensor.

Our solution was to add ND8 Glass filter in front of the camera, pack it inside Cinefoil and add a lot of light to fight the loss from ND Filter in order to have everything light perfectly and not just a big fire ball when the laser is running. Also we wanted to keep a low shutter speed to let the fire draw some line when working.

Of course it was in a very small room and all has to be remote from outside.
