Through a Glass, Portly


Movies are the only domain where magicians are encouraged to give away their secrets, and today readers are learning all about how Team Zombieland accomplished its bloody, magnificent "Seatbelt Rule" shot of a fat lady flying 20 feet out of her windshield before landing in front of the camera. Start with a little bit of this (a second-unit director), a little bit of that (cable winches), a little of the other thing (light visual effects) and a stuntwoman in a fat suit, and there it is. Duly noted for next year's Behind the Camera Awards! [LAT]
