Brief Explanation

This film is a fake picture that the Barbell was adhered to the floor but actually it was adhered to the ceiling. People would understand the creative gimmick, when the picture was turned over. The total weight of the performer and the Barbell is around 230kg. In fact, they are adhered to the ceiling in 6 seconds.

Execution

To express the reality and tense atmosphere, “one scene-one shot” is adopted. The system of shooting was built to realize “one scene-one shot”, from applying glue, sticking barbell on the ceiling, and zooming out the camera. (Please see details with making movie) The scene of coming off a pair of pants shows that direction of gravity changes from the top to the bottom.
