I'm trying to get a shot this weekend where I'm on a leaf hanging from a tree, and it falls to the ground. The camera is going to be on the leaf while it's hanging, and it follows it down to the ground. I've been thinking of ways for this leaf to look attached, and then fall after hanging for about 20 seconds. I'm not really sure how to accomplish this. I've thought of sticking a small/weak piece of clear tape to the leaf stem, attaching it to the tree, and then having a really thin piece of fishing line to pull the two apart and let the fishing line fall with the leaf.....Any other suggestions? This is all I got at the moment. I'm sure there is a better way.
