|Cloud 9 employs a Stunt Coordinator and specially trained stunt actors to perform certain parts that might be considered too risky for an actor.|
First the stunt artist must have similar looks to the actor they are portraying. Stunt artists are professionals and often have great skills in particular fields. Some might be great horse riders, gymnists or martial arts experts.
They bring excitement to risky scenes.
The stunt is rehearsed and carefully guided by the Stunt Coordinator. Mats are used to soften any falls and safety precautions are used throughout.
An establishing shot of the actor is shot before and after the scene and the stunt person fills in the middle.
When these scenes are cut together it is often difficult to tell that two different people have played the part.
