When my sister's son was about 2, they took him to the park and videotaped him going down a slide. My sister "caught" him at the bottom, but they kept playing the video in reverse so that it looked like she threw him up the slide to his dad. My, I laughed buckets at that in the early eighties.
It always felt like some sort of miracle happening back when I was six. Even today, I like trying to figure out how they engineered the shots. The ones in the video above are pretty simple, but I've seen some elaborate setups that involved a lot of planning to get the finished product the filmmaker wanted.
