...to teach actors and actresses how to simulate recoil in shooting scenes. You would think after over a century of movies, and over 75 years of television, some arsehat director would take off that arsehat when it comes to scenes involving firearms being shot and have the actors and actresses at least fake recoil. There just about should never be a scene in which a firearm is shot, by a person holding the gun, and recoil is not evident. I truly am sick and tired of watching shooting scenes with the characters supposedly firing all sorts of handguns and long guns without any effect on the supposed shooter.
All the best,
