Welcome! See below ...
: Hello. I've come to this site every once in awhile, and its really interesting! I was just watching the movie yesterday for the first time in a year, and I had a question, figuring this was the best place to come. Just out of curiosity, how did they do the stunt for Alice's suicide scene? Not the stunt where the stuntwoman is flying off the cliff, but the one where Jodhi May herself has her back turned to the camera (that is her, right?!!!) right before she falls. At first I thought maybe they filmed it on low ground (really, really low ground) but that doesn't make any sense because the background visuals give the appearance they are still on the cliffs. Was a platform built right under her, for her to kind of step on to? Am I missing something really obvious here? Anyway, thanks in advance to anyone who knows anything!:
Here's what I know. The back shot of Jodhi May, right before she jumps, is not Jodhi May, but a double. There was netting set up just off the cliff. The falling bodies were falling from the ridge above, The Skyline Trail, to padding set up on The Cliff Trail where all the action took place.
