This live-action, stop-motion fight scene makes it look like the filmmakers at Corridor Digital found a way to change the direction of gravity to help make their short film feel all the more epic. But an anti-gravity machine wasn’t the secret to how this entertaining video was shot.

If you haven’t figured it out already, instead of using complicated wirework, or expensive and time-consuming visual effects, the filmmakers simply mounted their camera to the ceiling of this studio and filmed the combatants lying on the floor in thousands of different poses.

The logistics of planning and filming a stop-motion fight sequence like this are mind-boggling. But all you have to do is hit play (probably a few times), sit back, and enjoy the clip.
