It was such a lovely idea to end Neighbours today with Paul falling off a cliff.
Unfortunately it was abysmally filmed. What we got was: Paul running into shot from a low angle, followed by him faltering then a different shot of a sheer drop. Then we got a close-up of Paul’s face with the word ‘whoops…’ dubbed onto the soundtrack, and another shot of the sheer drop with a fast zoom in to suggest falling.
This kind of effect I produced equally well myself as a 15-year-old with a camcorder.
How is it that Neighbours does brilliant explosions and car crashes, but can’t even show a man falling off a cliff?
