Now they'll do a Double Helicopter. Pick up Rollie and Laverne on this side. Roll 'em, Movies! Cut.... We'll have one more, which will be the best shot of all. They'll be coming from the left. You can see 'em now. Go, Movies!
Brad, Rollie and Laverne do a Triple Helicopter Spin.
Quick! Over to your right! That's your Aqua Ballet. Pull your distance back about 50 feet. Stills: in close, all framed up.
The Aquamaids ski past in chorus-line formation, arms linked, one leg raised in the knee-forward position, borne forward on the straining chords of The Impossible Dream. Next I see two ballerinas circling around.
There's your Double Swan Ballet, folks. They'll pass by one time. Movies: catch 'em at the turn. Good.... Folks, there's JO minutes more of show time. You've got a minute and a half to check your film supply because there's some of the better acts still coming up.
My seatmates put the minute and a half to strenuous use. Some of them run down to buy more film. Out on the water three clowns cut some capers. I am always glad to see capers cut. Up in the sky, the sun pokes through a cloud.
Folks, we've picked up half a stop of light. Everybody move down half a number on your f/stop. Do it—you've got time. Movies: we're holding 16 frames on f8. Did everybody close 'em down? Good. Out front, Movies—a good shot for you. Corky the Clown. Corky will be over this way in just a minute. He'll make the jump this time—no fooling.
Corky makes the jump, loses his skis in midair and zooms hilariously into the water, head first. It's a good shot for movies. A skier comes out with an enormous kite fastened to his back.
If you want a closeup, pick him up now. Then we'll get set for his flight. O.K., everybody go to your telephoto lens, distance markers on infinity. He'll make his touchdown over to your left. Try to get him in front of those trees—he'll show up better. He's airborne now, out behind. He'll be coming right over the stadium in just a minute. There he is! Shoot quick!
The kite skier splashes to a perfect landing, right in front of the trees.
