Here's some behind the scenes... I knew it was impossible to make the perfect throw in a single take. With only 1 hr left in the shoot (no room to start a chain reaction & reset), we used gel superglue to "freeze" the traps. And then... I threw the perfect throw in 1 take. :)— Andy Nick (@nickAD) April 9, 2020
A lot of people have been asking how we did the @OHdeptofhealth video (aka - the Mouse Trap project). Here's an iPhone clip of our first "shot", which took 8 hours to set up. pic.twitter.com/3xxjiiz2N5— Andy Nick (@nickAD) April 9, 2020
honest truth? The plan was to have 3k mouse traps. But with zero production time and major shipping problems due to COVID-19, it turned into our producer's job to drive to every Dollar Store in a 50 mile radius of Dayton Ohio. So, 500 is what we got. Movie magic, do your thang.— Andy Nick (@nickAD) April 10, 2020
