Film Safety were asked to look at putting someone over a waterfall in a barrel.
Film Safety are always interested in a new challenge and when we were asked to look at putting someone over a waterfall in a barrel, as you can imagine, there was a lot of laughter and terrible puns about barrels of laughs etc.
The idea was to see how it felt to go over Niagra Falls in a barrel. Our first problem was a suitable waterfall in the UK to simulate the drop, safely. Our second problem was to find someone to put in the barrel.
From a safety point of view the barrel was the most difficult part, we needed to be sure it would survive the fall and allow the person inside to 'enjoy' it.
We worked up the proposal but sadly the decision was not to go ahead. So if you want to put someone over a waterfall in barrel let us know...
