Shooting the Coke-Mentos Stunt
I love this video by Mark Achterberg. I’ve been saving and saving it for just the right moment. And the end of 2010 seems to be appropriate.
Mark shot this the day we shot the Coke-Mentos stunt from Chapter 10: Seven Minutes in Heaven which was our third day of shooting. It was a sweltering hot day and we were on the third floor of the Dragon Academy with tons of movie lights on making it even hotter.
Then we locked our three lead kids in a closet for several hours.
But we were in great spirits because despite the hear and how tiny the space was, because watching all that diet cola spurting out at Ali Adatia (Vinnie) was super awesome!
Mark was kind enough to put lots and lots of footage of the stunt into this video. I love watching it!
