The water in sink reflection remains throughout after a mask or video B is placed over the water flow?

Water is not a glue stick?

I’m thirsty.

Excellent use of audio to enhance the effect.

Water droplets on the sink in the lower right disappear when the editorial cut happens.

At the very beginning there are jelly pieces in the sink, leftover from the previous run?

And the stream gets much wider when cut.

The sound of water from the faucet continues after the stream has been “cut” and no more water is reaching the sink.

There’s a continuity error in the lower right. There’s something in the bottom of the sink that disappears as soon as the water is “cut.”

I can’t tell if this is considered hard water or soft water.
Seems like both.

It is the reflection in the sink wall. The reflection shows water still pouring down, even after the cut.

I’m just thinking about if this is workable with entirely practical effects. If you could affix the jelly “stream” with a little room to run some water over it, I wonder if you could turn off the water a second before cutting it and have it work the same way.

Its hard to show with still images but if you focus on the highlighted area as he cuts you can see the mask change, or the lighting or something.
