Accidents Will Happen

A TV production crew for a series about paramedics recently did a shoot in and around my office building. We watched a ground-shaking explosion with real flames, extras stumbling along with fake blood streaming into their eyes, and stuntmen leaping off rooftops.

Which brings me to unplanned, unrehearsed stunts – those that occur in everyday life. For anybody who’s tumbled down a set of stairs, you are not alone. I’ve done it, and so has this poor model in the video. Note the inauspicious number stamped on her briefcase.

Have you ever performed unplanned stunt work, and were you glad it wasn’t televised?
