15 Movie Shots They Pulled Off In Surprisingly Ingenious Ways

Movie shoots are often impressive and beautifully done, but sometimes they have to use some clever techniques to get the shot they're looking for.

There are some shots in movies that were pulled off in surprisingly ingenious ways. For example, the shot in "The Matrix" when Neo is dodging bullets. That was done by filming Keanu Reeves dodging a bunch of fake bullets that were made out of plaster and then reversed the footage. Or how about the famous shower scene from "Psycho"? Hitchcock used a camera on a crane to film actress Janet Leigh from directly above so that it looked like someone was spying on her. So, if you're ever feeling down about your creative abilities, just remember that there are some people out there who are much more creative than you – and they happen to be making movies.

These shots are definitely worth checking out! So without further ado, let's get started!
