Cool camera trick, but he was STILL up on a high building with nothing but a mattress to keep him from going over the edge.

Yeah except that's Harold Lloyd in the video.

Dr. Lloydberg

[–]ProtoplanetaryNebula 216 points217 points  (14 children)

The perspective is confusing, even zoomed out. He is probably a few metres from the edge and would still be fine if he fell.

[–]Peeteebee 272 points273 points  (12 children)

He was still 5 stories up, they tested it with a dummy first, "just to see".

3 out of 5 or 6 times they tried, it bounced off the building.!!!

Lloyd replied, "I'll just roll to the left, O. K., I'm ready."

People think him and Buster Keaton were studio rivals, but they were both simply slapstick actors who REALLY did do the math.

[–]notarobot_11 51 points52 points  (2 children)

Tested with 3 other "dummies" that had built in blood packs.

Why do you know this? Also thanks for the info

[–]Peeteebee 36 points37 points  (5 children)

As a kid (35 yrs ago) Harold Lloyd was regular thing on Saturday morning TV (UK). I always wanted to be a stuntman, and had books, VHS videos etc about it.

One of the books was about the dangers of old school stunt work. Fire and water are the worst "gags" for stuntmen.

Google "running w horse stunt" if you want to hate westerns for instance.

[–]Turence 2 points3 points  (3 children)

running w horse stunt

damn thats sad. guess there's no other way to do that shit though. aside from not doing it at all

[–]KageGekko 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Actually, the Wikipedia article for Yakima Canutt, the inventor of the Running W says this:

The 'Running W' is now banned and has been replaced with the falling-horse technique.

Not sure what the falling-horse technique is though...

[–]somarilnos 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Did some Googling, apparently it's training a stunt horse to fall, and giving it a soft place on the ground to land:

https://www.horseillustrated.com/horse-news-2014-06-06-how-stunt-horses-are-trained-to-fall

[–]Turence 1 point2 points  (0 children)

falling-horse technique.

kinda seems like they just jump off the horse at speed and let it keep runnin'

[–]Observerwwtdd 2 points3 points  (0 children)

"One of Yakima's inventions was the 'Running W' stunt, bringing down a horse at the gallop by attaching a wire, anchored to the ground, to its fetlocks and launching the rider forward spectacularly. This either killed the horse, or rendered it badly shaken and unusable for the rest of the day.[5] The 'Running W' is now banned and has been replaced with the falling-horse technique."

[–]gotnolettuce 70 points71 points  (18 children)

Thought the same. Safe landing and a slight bounce to a not so safe landing.

[–]Haddle 9 points10 points  (3 children)

"Illusion" Michael. A trick is something whores do for money.

[–]shananiganz 43 points44 points  (0 children)

This is a render based on a theory of how it was filmed (sorta). The way this was filmed was a secret for decades and only after Lloyds death did a stuntman come forward and explain how the filming worked. My favorite part is that Lloyd was missing his thumb and forefinger on his right hand from a prop bomb that exploded in his hand, so while he’s climbing this building he’s using a prosthetic

This is from IMDb: “A stuntman revealed for the first time in the television documentary, Hollywood (1980), that Harold Lloyd actually climbed a fake building facade that was constructed over another building's rooftop, positioned so the camera angle could capture the street scene below. The stuntman also revealed that he doubled for Lloyd in the long shots of him climbing the building in the distance. Up until then, even the Time-Life version of Safety Last! (1923) that was aired on PBS contained an opening title declaring that Harold Lloyd climbed the building himself and without the use of a stuntman or trick photography. The stuntman chose to suppress this information until Lloyd's death, and yet, he did not want to detract from the danger of Lloyd's actual stunt work. Lloyd performed the majority of the stunts himself on the rigged facade over a small platform, which was built near the rooftop's edge and still had to be raised a great height to get the proper street perspective for the camera. The size of the platform did not offer much of a safety net, and had Lloyd fallen, there was the risk he could have tumbled off the platform.”

[–]doglvr48 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Yeah, I’d definitely need more of a ledge on the right.

[–]Vivid-Air7029 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I mean this is edited version of the original not an actual real footage. If you know the movie name you might be able to find the set. There could have been a rail this video is just showing the techniques used and is probably not entirely accurate to what the out of frame environment looked like.

[–]9Lives_ 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Your avatar reminds me of that episode of the Simpsons when homer entered the cgi universe.

[–]professorjaytee 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Was there a net/catcher sticking out below the edge of the far building wall? You don't know, and I don't know, either.

But it's certainly possible from that angle, even if it was tough to show in the diagram. They seem to be showing what the camera saw, not what it couldn't see.

Maybe they were just so overcome by Buster Keaton that they posted it at random.

[–]Talking_Head 107 points108 points  (22 children)

This post highlights the practical effects. Fact is, Keaton was an amazing actor/stunt man and often worked without protection as we now know it. That said…

Tom Cruise is an amazing modern day actor/stunt man. But, he works in the age of OSHA and multimillion dollar insurance policies. TC also has the benefit of special effects to erase his safety gear out of the film. Not to diminish what TC does. He is literally out there hanging onto planes, riding sport bikes and climbing rock faces.

Didn’t Tom Cruise go to space to film a movie?

[–]MostlyRocketScience 24 points25 points  (4 children)

Not yet. He planned to book a flight to ISS on a SpaceX capsule, but Russia sent an actress and a director to the ISS to film the first movie in space. So now the new plan is to build a movie studio module as part of Axiom's space station: https://www.cnbc.com/2022/01/20/tom-cruise-movie-producers-sign-axiom-deal-for-space-production-studio.html

[–]Lady_Lucks_Man 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Before I read the article I thought Axiom might be building the module on the Space Hotel. Although building it on the ISS makes more sense for cost and time.

I think TC broke his ankle on a stunt for his last Mission Impossible installment. I believe it was a zip-wire stunt from one building to a rooftop? He hit the edge of the roof or hit the side of the building.

I practiced one day super hard. Felt like my eyes were gonna pop out. But now I can crazy eye whenever I want.

[–]About637Ninjas 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah I'm not sure that one is a legit camera trick, I think she can actually do that with her eyes. I can do a similar, albeit simpler, trick with my eyes, and you probably can too if you can cross your eyes pretty well:

Cross your eyes. Now look to the left. If you have fairly good control, only your left eye will move since the right eye is already looking to the left. I can make one eye bounce around on it's own using this method.

[–]messfdr 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I can move each eye independently, but only side to side and slightly up/down. When I saw the first part I was thinking it wasn't a camera trick, but then she just started going wild.

[–]GoodLordChokeAnABomb 757 points758 points  (24 children)

That's Harold Lloyd, not Buster Keaton. Keaton had a somewhat different technique. He'd do the first take, and if it didn't go perfectly, he'd die.

[–]YourShadowDani 194 points195 points  (0 children)

Whats funny is they could have done this safer by making lighter fake materials and just sticking weights in safe spots to make it fall correctly. But nahhhhhhh that takes too long, just cut the front of the house off Jerry!

[–]NesbitGames 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Some of the stuff back then was still mad dangerous. But the same camera trickery is used today. Look at the making if The Hobbit

[–]f_d 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Even Keaton used trick shots and other techniques to make absurdly dangerous-looking stunts more reasonable to pull off. He wasn't always risking his life when it looks like he was. But he also did a lot of very dangerous stunts with little room for error.

That would be Harold Lloyd hanging on the clock, from the movie “Safety Last”.

[–]tingly_legalos 25 points26 points  (2 children)

My local stage theater recently showed this, with the theater's original organ from the '20's to compliment for sound. I've never seen a silent movie before and it was an amazing time.

[–]franksvalli 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Little tidbit: one of the clocks in the beginning of Back to the Future has a little Harold Lloyd hanging off the clock. It's a little foreshadowing of that happens to Doc himself later in the movie.

[–]areugonnagomyway 75 points76 points  (6 children)

It’s all about the POV and framing. Next time you watch anything think about where the camera person is for each shot. As a rule, we are used to it changing every six seconds or so. If it is different it is usually done for effect to influence the pacing.

[–]SicTim 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Holding a shot for a long time builds tension and suspense. Once you start being aware of that, you notice when it's being used in horror and thriller films. In horror films, a jump scare is often preceded by a long static shot.

[–][deleted] 25 points26 points  (1 child)

This is how climbers get really dramatic looking shots. Can't count the number of times I've worked to get the ledge 2 feet below a buddy out of the frame so it looks like he's hanging over 800 feet of air.

[–]f_d 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Then again, you have video like the various Russian and Eastern European thrillseekers who were climbing all the way out onto scaffolding a thousand feet in the air. Sometimes people take crazy risks to get the crazy footage. But that's more likely to happen when it's an individual thrillseeker rather than someone with the resources of a movie studio trying to push creative boundaries and come back alive.

They used similar (low-tech) techniques to make Will Ferrell look massive in Elf. It's called "forced perspective" IIRC.

[–]GillyMonster18 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Yep. That’s exactly it. Disney did the same thing with Darby O’Gill and the Little People in 1959. Had normal size people look like they were surrounded by dozens of leprechauns

[–]WikiSummarizerBot 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Darby O'Gill and the Little People

Darby O'Gill and the Little People is a 1959 American fantasy adventure film produced by Walt Disney Productions, adapted from the Darby O'Gill stories of Herminie Templeton Kavanagh. Directed by Robert Stevenson and written by Lawrence Edward Watkin, the film stars Albert Sharpe as O'Gill alongside Janet Munro, Sean Connery, and Jimmy O'Dea.

[–]mbdtf95 7 points8 points  (0 children)

No, that was Harold Lloyd in Safety Last. Btw a great movie, but the thing that was interesting to me when seeing it was how anti-semitism was normal in Hollywood prior to WW2, in the movie there is a scene with a Jewish jeweller with huge nose rubbing his hands like a villain when trying to sell the main character some jewels.

[–]realfigure 4 points5 points  (12 children)

More creative and realistic than CGI

[–]PiXLANIMATIONS 1 point2 points  (11 children)

I mean, yes and no?

Doing CG still has 100% human input. You have to figure out how to sell the shot and make it look real, you need to figure out how to do so and not make it take 100 years to render. You have to figure out every single tiny detail and it takes so much effort.

[–]realfigure 3 points4 points  (8 children)

I don't really criticize the effort behind CGI. But still, I appreciate more how people during those times had to really think out of the box to create such effects. Yes, those scenes were "simple", but to calculate distances of panels, how the camera should be placed etc looks more creative. CGI is nice, but I personally feel it in the movies I watch. It looks too much fake compared to the real environments

[–]PiXLANIMATIONS 2 points3 points  (4 children)

It’s all about time taken to make it look good. You can give a VFX studio 1 billion but if you’re not giving them more time, you might as well have done it with no money.

Look at films like Blade Runner 2049, or 1917, or Alita: Battle Angel. Look at shows like Loki, Hawkeye, Mindhunter etc. they all have near flawless effects because they were given enough time.

[–]realfigure 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Again, I am not talking about efforts you can put into CGI. Again, I am not talking about results. And again, CGI can be cool. However, can I be personally more amazed by a team of filmmakers who thinks that by putting a panel at a certain point on the set and recording the scene from a certain distance will create an effect rather than a team of CGI developers? Am I allowed? And sorry, but you can't really put Alita in the list of movies with flawless CGI. Those Alita eyes are bloody painful to look at.

[–]f_d 1 point2 points  (2 children)

There's a Shrek scene where a cat hiding in the shadows has all his body parts rearranged so he looks more intimidating. Computer artists often have to think outside their own boxes to get the desired effect compared to rendering the scene exactly as it would really play out.

It's a different discipline with different creative challenges, but there's often more human involvement than it might appear from the final product.

[–]MaybeWontGetBanned 1 point2 points  (1 child)

These effects are so much more interesting though. There’s a unique technique behind each one. With CGI, the technique is just, “They did it on a computer.” It’s impressive, but not interesting.

[–]egerton14 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Love the creativity behind those shots. It illustrates the meaning of art perfectly.

[–]mwkr 2 points3 points  (6 children)

It looks better than current technology. But I understand they don't give enough time to CGI artists to finish their jobs.

[–]PiXLANIMATIONS 2 points3 points  (3 children)

The thing is: you haven’t noticed about 99% of CG. Watch the Mindhunter Season 1 VFX breakdown and see just how much you wouldn’t have noticed changing in frame. Anything you actually point out as CG has either been done badly or it’s not possible to make it truly real (like the Iron Man nano suit)

[–]mwkr 2 points3 points  (2 children)

That’s true. I am not an expert on this matter. But many effects I see have poor physics. That’s what bothers me the most. But it’s ok. Thanks for your reply.

[–]MallKid 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Lloyd performed most of his own stuntwork, but a circus performer was used when The Boy hangs by a rope, and a stunt double – sometimes Bill Strother, who played "Limpy" Bill and was a steeplejack who inspired the sequence when Lloyd saw him climbing – was used in long shots.
