Filming Tips

The footage used with this article was created outdoors, using a camera-mounted tripod to film an actor throwing a ball. The actor clicks his fingers when the ball is in midair, signifying the point when the ball should burst into flames.

When creating a scene like this, try to make sure that the actor throws the object within the field of the camera to retain a level of realism. Check also that there is little or no movement in the background, that the thrown object is large enough to be seen, and that the object has a color that clearly differentiates it from the background (see Figure 1).
