Take a look at the stunts being performed by the
'Skyfall' action unit on the roofs of Istanbul..
Istanbul Motorcycle Stunts
2nd May 2012
A few days before the first unit arrived to
shoot on location in Istanbul, the "Skyfall" second unit and
stunt teams were on the roofs in the city filming motorcycle
photographs below, a stuntman doubling Ola Rapace's character
Patrice with a hairpiece and black dots on his face which will
be used later to aid post production.
media mistakenly thought damage was being done to
the historic rooftops. Michael G. Wilson addressed the issue
in a press
conference last week and stated that the
were actually moving on platforms that had been placed on the
roofs, at a cost of 135,000 Turkish liras. Original roof tiles
were carefully removed and boards of synthetic tiles were put
in place for the filming, before the originals were later replaced.
The media were shown this work up close yesterday in an attempt
to put an end to the story.
