Need advise for upcoming commercial - Slide timelapse

PostWed Jan 24, 2018 10:26 pm

Hi all,

I have recently purchased a BMMCC and a load of accessories to get it up and running including a Metabones BMPCC ef adapter.

So Far loving the camera!

i have a upcoming shoot which involves a scene where the camera is on a slider moving away from a Hat stand. A boy puts his hat on the lowest holder on the stand, and the scene starts.
I want to make this shot a timelapse type shot, where the hat starts at the bottom of the stand, and slowly goes up the stand simulating the boy getting older.
From what i have done in the past, i think i will do 1 take of the slider with each position of the hat, totaling maybe 8 shots with each shot the hat in a new position.
Then in post i would fade the shots together in line with the exact slide position to make it seemless.

NOW - here is where i am not sure what to do -
I would like background things to change, such as things moving and things changing in a rapid sense, as this scene is supposed to simulate time passing as the hat goes up the stand and boy gets older.

I have seen this effect in the past, but i am not sure how to pull it off...

Any suggestions about anything in this scene?

Much appreciated.
