Titanic - Skateboarding Down the Titanic
As the ship is starting to get verticle, people start slipping down the floor to their unfortunate end. Unfortunately for the film-makers, the slipping actors had to ride on a board with wheels, which can be visible to anybody who pays attention.

They were rolling across flat ground and put the camera on it's side.

OK! The crew created a 55 degree slope. They then had the stunt men slide down it, while a camera man, along with James Cameron, slid on one of those boards with wheels and filmed the scene. I read the book...I know!

How the heck are you going to rollerblade down a 400 ft. drop with the ship being up striaght??? You'd be on the floor sliding, or be flying downward off of the ship .

Two mile long Titanic? It was more like 882 feet long, but close to two miles, give or take 10,000 feet.

You people are so confused. The titanic sits 2 miles below the surface. It is definately not 2 miles long.

I noticed also that you can see several people sliding down with roller blades on. But, how else, would they be able to move that fast?

wildflower--i actually saw a speacial about the making of titanic and it said that james cameron built an exact size replica of titanic...one side of it anyway and built the back of the ship as well. also, regarding the people falling, i also saw on a show that the people had cable attached to them, i dont recall them saying anything about boards or rollerblades.

Hold on here! I belive you about the roller blades, but I watched the movie on Direct TV. I had to wait twenty minutes before it started and I watched this over a million times: They have some behind the seans shots of the movie, It is said that and I quote: 'A series of pulkies and gears were used to rais and lower the elaborate sets'. Doesn't that mean that when they were filming the sets where tilted or something? ~ A very confused Titanic fan

okay, look: Do you honestly think they re-created the entire two mile long Titanic for one movie? for that scene, they built only like the last 10 yards and used stunt men to do the falling (or most of it). Of course you can see the boards. Let it go.
