A Worm's Eye View
During “Alaska,” we learned that a team of scientists discovered another egg 25 years ago. While experimenting with it, the group unknowingly began following their leader (sound familiar?)—right off the roof of the building to their deaths.
In order to safely film the deadly scene, four "high fall specialists"—some with a background in high diving—were used. A big focus for this type of stunt is having a good idea of “air aense,” a specific style of training. It's essential for the dramatic scene because of the level of difficulty involved in landing in such a confined space. For a large jump like this no detail is over looked—the hair department was sure to choose a hair style that didn’t require any hard pins as to reduce any possible of injury.
