Hi all,

I know there are lots of John Wick fans here like me, so I thought I'd share this insightful video I just found. Enjoy.

Saw this video last week. It's very insightful.

I enjoy the action, too, but I have some concerns about safety. I don't see how some of the shots (both gun and camera) can be done without injuring the person being shot. Even blanks are dangerous within 10 feet or so, and many of the firings in John Wick movies are practically point blank. And they are done so fast that it doesn't seem to me that it is possible to use carefully planned diverted lines of fire to avoid hurting the person "shot". Does the shootee wear a vest? Would that be enough to satisfy the legal minds monitoring the filming?

flashguy - they don't need to use blanks. The muzzle flashes are added in w/ CGI. That's also why the discharges show little-to-no recoil. The gun-fu happens so quickly and usually in low lighting, it's hard to tell, but I think sometimes the slides don't cycle, and no casings are ejected.

In the video the OP posted, at 3:08 is a short example of a shooting scene where they show actual filming w/o effects and post-production w/ CGI added.

Check out the amazingly badass movie The Raid: Redemption. There's a lot of gunplay in the beginning of that film. There are no working guns in the entire movie - they're all Airsoft and mock-ups with CGI gunfire and casings, sometimes with strobe lighting added to simulate flash reflections in the rooms and corridors.

I had never heard of John Wick until recently when I was contacted to help them with some props.

Be on the look out for my stuff. Wink
