Limitless (2011) VFX - Jump Cutting


Another type of effect involved slightly jump-cutting or altering shots, such as for a scene of Eddie and his girlfriend kissing while both of them are under NZT’s influence. “That was shot with three 35mm cameras on an array,” says Schrecker. “It was a dolly or Steadicam move as they’re going through the kitchen to the living room and then falling on the couch. It was shot from three different angles simultaneously and the idea was to go, as the camera’s moving, more from one camera position to the next one. It’s a morph and a transition, and then a lot of roto to isolate them from the background.”
