Making The Boy Who Could Fly
We believe the following info is all legit. If it's bogus or you have additional info, please update us.
They phoned a local doctor; "Dr. Waldie". He made a house call and charged the film company 14 dollars for the call.
This really amazed the producer, hence... "paging doctor Waldie"...
They built a brick wall, on the roof edge of the school, where the kids drop off. It was about 4 or 5 feet high, and quite long.
The shot I watched them film was the shot where underwood scores a basket as he flys off of the school grounds. it involved several hours of bordom for me, standing arround waiting. It took three takes to get it. After the second take the director said, "don't shoot at the basket... shoot the ball to him..." and the third was the keeper!
The school room was in the back of Lord Byng (A block) close to the playground where the fair was; (on the 1st floor). It was nice to see a "flying shot" being filmed... There was a "crane" there, it's sort of a big truck with a crane on top. It has been all over the world. There are lead bars, weights on it and they are signed by crews from all over the world. While I was there the crew was pounding impressions of canadian money onto one of these bars.
