Dirt Blasts are the best

I was asked to film and edit a WW1 action scene for a theatre production here in Australia. And actionvfx came with the clutch :pouch:

I just got off my PC after 10 hours in front of my composting software, so just pretend I wasn’t too lazy to find Hans Gruber falling, and recomp the shot so he falls to invisibility, then 17 frames later* a dust hit at “ground level” ala Wile E. Coyote.

*according to Chuck Jones’ autobiography, it’s always a 17 frame gap between Wile E. fading from view and the final splat.
