Dear master roger how did you get nice mirage effect on 'Jarhead' movie. Generally how to get artificial mirage effect for wide shots.

We had some burners beneath the camera lens.

Master roger What kind of burners? can i achieve the mirage effect on wide lenses? But peoples always said you can't get that effect when you use wide lenses.

What focal length mostly did you use for mirage effects shots.

Longer lenses do work better. I can't remember exactly what burners we used on 'Jarhead', probably a tray of rags soaked in paraffin, but a dovetail gas burner works as well.
