It’s been awhile since I watched Stargate Universe, but this morning I had a trip down memory lane watching the behind-the-scenes featurette of the Lt. Scott (Brian Jacob Smith) car hit from the episode, Cloverdale.
In the wrong hands these stunts could go horribly wrong. But in James Bamford and his team’s hands, it works to perfection – wonderfully conceived and executed. In the featurette James explains how the stunt performer raises his centre of gravity and pivots so he lands on the car and rolls off rather than get the full impact on his leg.
It’s very interesting how the shot was put together. Great job by Stunts Canada members Brent Connolly (Lt. Scott double) and Dave Hospes (driver). Also, wonderful job as always by Ivon Bartok capturing the behind-the-scenes action. We really were spoilt on Stargate.
Great work, Bam! It looks spectacular.
