The short film "Happy and Glorious" by director Danny Boyle was shot in March, but played in 'real time' during the ceremony, with a helicopter hovering over the audience for the transition to live action. Stunt doubles were used for the parachute jump and Daniel Craig was not actually at the event tonight.
