  1. They have these "levitation-like" shots in a zero gravity space ship. https://youtu.be/L8eRzOYhLuw?t=1m36s At first I thought maybe a wire harness or they did this with a chroma key/green screen Then I believe the closeup shots around 3:01 gave it away. Pause at 3:01 and it looks like she's laying on a glass layer that for the most part looks invisible but here you can see small scratches on the glass. Also how her hair appears to be laying on top of something instead of floating in some of the closeup shots. Anyone know what the name of this "invisible glass" is or is it just regular glass that they hid with lighting and post?
  2. How did they do the various levitation shots here? starting at 2:14 and then there's many different shots that continue throughout the video. In normal levitation photography, you have them propped up and posing on something like a stool/chair and you compoosite it out. This is much easier with a still photo. In this video though, the subject and camera are both moving. My assumption is some places they use the same concept of propping him up on something and then doing a hell of alot of post work to edit out the stool? Rotoscoping and what not. In other wide shots I'm thinking maybe they have a condor/crane with a wire harness that's holding him up and is edited out later? Are there other methods to achieving this that I'm not aware of?
