the jump effect
---------------------------------------

several techniques on set to capture images for the jumping effect. Multiple still cameras were exposed at varying shutter speeds and fired in sequence

much like the “bullet time” effect made famous in The Matrix -- to smear and stretch the actors’ image. Motion control techniques, stunt doubles and simple “freeze and action” techniques also were used.
--------------------------------
Using mostly Nuke and Shake, the effect was achieved using mostly a 2D solution.
--------------------------------
one of the keys was to make the effect a quick on,settled on two or three frames.
-----------------------
The bus that was used where it flips through the air was a real bus but hollowed-out.
-----------------------



Weta combined a background with greenscreen footage.
--------------------------------------



Several scenes also called for jumps to be shot from the jumper’s point of view,The sequences were shot without greenscreens.


-------------------------------------
location shooting in Rome, Tokyo, Baja, California, Prague, New York and Ann Arbor, Michigan.
-------------------------------------
While most of the film’s effects were focused on the jumping, there were other effects.a weapon called a tether,The flying tethers and the metal lassoes were digital.
