Photographing stunts - Car hitting a person.
Posted 14 November 2008 - 09:41 PM
I've never shot anything like this and I'm concerned about selling the effect and the safety of the actor/stuntsman. Our budget is not the biggest and I don't know if we can do this with SFX (although we're shooting it on the RED, plenty of information) I think for one the budget and the release date for the film is extremely tight and hinders us from doing that.
So please and advice on this or tricks would be greatly appreciated.
I start shooting in December. Thanks,

Obviously don't do anything that could endanger the safety of the actor or stuntman.

This is clearly how this was done, albeit with camera movement and some convenient birds flying by to mask the transition, and it is highly effective:
Looking at that, it might even just be a greenscreen drop-in of the kid, and you wouldn't need motion control - there isn't enough parallax to give away the fact that he could be a flat element.
