I am in pre-production of a commercial shoot in Hong Kong. I need to shoot a giant pack of gum crashing onto the ground, landing in front of a person. I plan to build a miniature pack of gum. Any suggestions on how to achieve a realistic outcome? I shoot a lot of live action stuff so I'm unfamiliar with miniatures and effects shots. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Wouldn't a miniature pack of gum... be a normal pack of gum?

Not if his actors are very, very small.
