When shooting and editing a safety training film, we set up five different shots and edited them together to simulate the man falling. We tossed empty boxes in the air and asked our actor to lie on the floor and move his arms and legs down. The final shot is a reaction shot. (All photos courtesy of Richard Cash.)
