All rocket scenes were CGI. No rockets were harmed in the making of this video.

In that "drone" shot, the seven people were in the correct relative positions based on earlier scenes, but the shadows were drawn in in exactly the opposite direction!

During the 13 years I was a local TV news reporter, I usually cut all of my shots to five seconds unless they were non-static (moving).

I recall more than one kid fresh out of journalism school who'd cut their shots at three seconds. Then they'd have to repeat their shots (usually in exactly the same order) because they didn't shoot enough extra shots to make up for the shorter cuts.

One of my recurring comments about that was, "We're the news, NOT a music video!" SMH

We have a very small market station that gets a lot of kids right out of school. They do extremely short cuts and rotate them through a dozen times to the point of nausea. Couple that with kids at the desk in addition to location reporting that get stage fright, tongue tied, have all kinds of accents, etc. and it's pretty hard to watch sometimes.

Hahaha. Sounds like the "local" TV station at our place up north. Channel 12 News in Wausau, WI.
