What goes into filming aerial sequences
Timing in at 8 minutes and 25 seconds.
Creating safe and believable flight is a major challenge for Hollywood stunt performers. Since George Reeves’s portrayal of Superman in the ’50s, movies and TV shows have used a dizzying array of wires, pans, and other rigs to elevate actors into the air. The best equipment to use is variable, depending on the style of flight depicted. In the 1978 film “Superman,” a major breakthrough occurred when a visual effects artist figured out how to move the camera in such a way that Christopher Reeve would look like he was flying even though he was lying flat. Many of the same wire and camera techniques used in the past are still in use today. Flying moves can be pre-programmed into a robotic arm, as seen in “Black Widow,” and digital doubles can make even the most dangerous flying tricks possible. CC Ice, who plays Elizabeth Olsen in movies, explained to us how Wanda Maximoff was able to soar in both “Avengers: Infinity War” and “WandaVision.” We appreciate the time and effort put in by those who gave interviews and footage for this piece: In case you missed it, here’s CC Ice: https://www.instagram.com/cc ice stunts/ Inch, Rob. https://www.instagram.com/allstunts/ To see more of Dayna Grant’s stunts, visit her Instagram page: To see more from Christiaan Bettridge, visit https://www.instagram.com/stannibombani/.
