Actors Flying High in Oz the Great and Powerful

When there is a movie with witches in it, we can expect a lot of flying. When I watch a movie with flying actors, knowing about how the actors would be suspended on wires for long periods of time as live action models in the film "Peter Pan" comes to my mind.

When watching the movie, "Oz the Great and Powerful" I wondered how these women were able to manage acting while being suspended on wires for long periods of time. I thought about how sometimes I think my job as a mom can be physically grueling, but I cannot imagine how challenging it must be to act while suspended in the air for long periods of time.

During the recent "Oz the Great and Powerful" press conference, the question was asked about how the witches managed to act while being suspended from wires.

Michelle Williams said, "I think we both really loved being on the wires."

Rachel Weisz shared with the group that it was a little scary for her on the first day. There were stunt coordinators who had worked with the director, Sam Raimi on "Spiderman" films that helped with this film. She shared how they had help from experts who were good at making people fly.

The director, Sam Raimi said that the ladies were good sports. That they would be hanging for hours. He said, "I know those wires. They cut into you. The straps do. They dig into your legs and into your arms. It can be exhausting and acting from wires, and it can leave marks."

Just like with being a mom, sometimes we are in situations that are challenging, but we have to work through them. The same was true for these two women acting from wires in the film. Rachel Weisz said, "You hear Sam say 'action.'" Then Michelle Williams said, "everything just sorta drops away, and I feel like you are always acting through something. Just like it is really hot, or it is really cold, or you are hanging from ceilings."

"Oz the Great and Powerful" is coming to theaters on Friday, March 8th.

  5. It's getting a little late, isn't it? Not in the day, but in the season, which hermes replica has flown by, as it is wont to do. The holidays will be here in a week and a half, and that means your available shopping days to get everything delivered, wrapped and under the tree are starting to dwindle. (And this year, the first day of Hanukkah is on Christmas Eve, so that timeline is accurate for even more of our readers than usual!) Because we want you guys to be prepared (and because we feel a certain amount of responsibility for making sure you are, this being a website about shopping and all), we've assembled a list of super fashionable gifts that aren't back-breakingly expensive and will still arrive at your house in plenty of mulberry replica uk for the holidays. If you're a little stressed out and want to treat yourself to one in the process, well, we won't tell. Sometimes I know a bag is great from stock images, but usually I need to see a piece in person to really know whether or not I connect with it. After all, stock images can be deceiving in both good and bad ways–well-taken images can make an average bag look luxurious, and poorly taken images can make a gorgeous piece of craftsmanship look average, and maybe even cheap miu miu outlet. In person, though, all is revealed. Back in the day, Goyard's signature print was hand-applied to all the coated canvas used to make the brand's bags. Now that process is achieved through mechanized etching and layering of dye, but personalizations (which require an extra fee) are still hand-painted by a Goyard artisan in one of the house's handful of celine outlet uk global ateliers: Beverly Hills, New York, Mexico, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Brazil or Carcassone, France.
