Stranglehold & Safety
I'm about to shot a scene where one actor is lifting up some other actor from the ground (several inches) by a strangehold.
My question is now how to do this safe, proper and realistic at a very no budget level (max. $50). So the face close-ups, of course, are done with something like stool where the strungled acter can stand on but how to handle a long shot where you can see the entire actor hanging in the air? With dangling feets which, I think, makes it a bit tricky.
Thanks for your help!
