WDYS — Movie Magic

“You must have been scared shitless when they were filming that scene,” Irene said to her friend when she saw the photo they were using to promote the movie. “How did they keep you from falling into the abyss? Invisible wires or something?”

Cara laughed. “It wasn’t scary at all, Irene. It was all just movie magic and computer generated graphics. That slab that it looks like I am desperately hanging onto for dear life hoping to be saved by the outstretched arm of the movie’s hero, was as flat and horizontal as the floor we’re standing on right now! It’s all camera angles and CGI to make it look like I was in peril at the edge of a steep precipice. And in the movie, I was the first casualty, dead within the first minute of the film when I fell to my death because the hero couldn’t grab me in time. But as you can see, I’m very much alive and well.”

“I can’t believe it. It looks so realistic in that photo,” Irene marveled.

“This was the opening scene of the movie and I was on screen for barely a minute,” Cara said. “But maybe if others are as impressed as you are with my movie debut, perhaps my next movie role will last a little longer than a minute and won’t end with my death.

    And maybe Cara’s face will be famous again if the poster makes it to an antique’s auction in the future, hehe.
