Levitating Girl - Experimental Stop Motion
Another sequence messing around with stop motion - this was a bit of a trial run and we hit a few problems with this so sadly it involved quite a lot of merging images in photoshop - we ended up having to shoot the magician and the girl separately.
However, the levitation is not photoshop - I guess it's pretty obvious how it was done - but it is surprisingly effective.
Brodie Lock - our very game and physically fit model reckoned she could do 500 jumps, I figured she'd be lucky to do 100. She managed about 50 and was slowing down :)
I'd love to do this in a much larger scale, and more accurately controlled, but you would have to be astonishingly strong in your legs to do this anything like enough times to make more than a few seconds.
