I've seen some movies where the stunts were just "unbelievable", over-the-top. How do you find a happy medium so people believe the movie more? I'd hate to lose viewers because the stunts are crazy.
Exactly! I like action movies with a story containing rivals instead of a protagonist that seems to know it all. Thinking back, stunts involving jumping between buildings are a flop when the distance isn't realistic anymore.The audience becomes more captivated by a story when there's a struggle involved.
I'm sure that's what the producers of "Happy Days" thought when making the now infamous "Jumping The Shark" episode. They didn't realize just how unrealistic the whole thing was, and how ridiculous it would look because of that. It was so bad, that's how we got the term Jumping The Shark.The audience becomes more captivated by a story when there's a struggle involved.
