Crowd Control

Over on Flickr I noticed one of my “buddies” has a cool photo set from the production of a film. 7-how-7 has some behind the scenes photos from a production down in Pomona.

Ever wonder how they get thousands of people in the stands as background for sports scene? Sometimes they don’t, they rent blow up dolls that they dress up and place in the seats. Then they put real people in strategic places to make it look like they’re real people.

Kinda cool, eh? Click on the photo to see the whole gallery.

  1. Yes–the LATimes did a story on the guys who dreamt up these inflatables–that story featured their work on Seabiscuit. And that was a while ago.
