Hey Guys!

I have a shoot coming up where I would like to mimic an actor falling from the sky via green screen.
I am curious about body harnesses. I guess my main two questions are:

Does anyone know any brands / rental houses that carry that kind of equipment?

How difficult is it to key out the wires that are holding the actor up?

Thanks!

I've used Miller and Yates harnesses. The Yates was far more comfortable for long term use. Here in LA, VER Safety is the place to get them. Try roofing supply places, and rigging supply places. Find a vendor who really knows this stuff, as there are some unexpected circulatory issues with hanging in a harness for long periods. Guys have died after being lowered from some of the new HDTV towers.
