The project is on the movement of fluids and unveiling. As a final piece the plan was to film a projection of ink dispersing in water being projected onto a persons torso and slowly revealed by the coat being opened. However, there is a hitch. The short film starts with a girl she then slowly un-buttons her big coat and the projection comes on revealing a bleeding effect, but when the projection appears the background becomes extremely dark and you can no longer see the girl.

I have tried changing pretty much every setting and still the same happens, I don't know what it is. I can post the video so you can see if that helps?

I assume the video camera is set to automatic exposure? Can it be fixed to manual exposure? Or could you add supplemental lighting on the subject?
