  • Short Summary

    Various camera tricks are used to spice up an aviation film.

  • Description

    "Lots of us have wondered at man-made air stunts - " Low angle shot of biplane in flight, it turns in the air. "But, even the stunt artist couldn't do the next - without our new stop-and-go-on process!" Camera attached to the back of a biplane records the flight over a beach and town. Camera trick is used to stop and reverse the film several times.

    "Three views simultaneously...and no extra charge." Bizarre shot where three images are seen at the same time. This "three view" technique is used to show different views of a stunt man climbing out onto the wing of a plane and hanging off the bottom. "To land or not to land...(or, he who hesitates is not lost.)" Film reversal is used to show the plane moving towards the ground then reversing back. Another camera view is seen - from the front of the plane as it lands.
