All done in real time with no trick photography, camera edits, or CGI. Took 606 takes to get it all correct.


Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes.
We'll blaze a new trail,
and torch the rough patches.

Posted:Nah, just cos they're pushed with just the right amount of force. If you look, they roll back down afterward.

Thats what I love about it, everything in it is just about powerful enough to do its job, no more.

It really reminded me of good contact juggling for some reason.
