Hi, Just thought I'd post a pic of the "salt rocket" shot...

Like the salt effect. How did you actually do it though?

Hi Keith,

The rocket that you see is just a cut out, which is static. The camera pans to give the illusion of movement. I'm round the back pouring lots of salt down a paper chute and into a cut-open, up-side-down tic-tac box, which is positioned behind the cut out rocket. The flip lid of the tic-tac box perfectly made the salt spread out to give the look of the jet stream (or whatever it's called) in the upper atmosphere.

I've got a photo some where i took of it, but can't find it right now. I'll probably post it at some other point.
