My question didn't seem to fit under any of the other categories.
Hopefully you're familiar with the film. I've often wondered how the following scene was achieved.
There is a shot at 01:56:56 which begins at approx 13 ft with the camera directed at a trees leaves blowing in the wind, the camera is dropped down to a font, then is dragged approx 70 ft underneath a house no more than three feet above the ground following the water gradually making its way down a hillside. It lasts almost two minutes.
I'm a little puzzled about how this was done. I suspected a rope and pulley of sorts but the height at which the camera begins and the incline of its drop towards the font has me doubt that.
Has anyone any idea how it was done?
