Since the movie is about gymnastics, there are a lot of specialized talents involved on-screen and one of the most significant is the incredible athleticism of the gymnasts themselves.

 

In one particular scene, because of a wardrobe conundrum, one of our gymnasts was wearing a body stocking under her unitard. This not only created wrinkles, but also visibly poked out from under the uniform. Unacceptable! Well, if we can remove wires, why the hell not panty lines too?

 

So frame by frame we go, and smooth out those wrinkles, extend some skin here or some unitard there (and even the stray foreign shadow thing on set) and at the end of the day we have a very well coifed competitive gymnast looking her best!
