In Big Momma's House(2000) we see a woman giving birth to a baby.

The camera angle does not shift at all during the scene, or very little at least and a baby is filmed coming out of the woman.

In movies like this, how is a woman giving birth to a live baby filmed when the camera angle has not shifted at all?

I believe this is the clip you're talking about:

  1. Your assertion that the camera angle does not shift at all is wrong. There's several dozen jump-cuts and camera angles there.

  2. We don't actually see the baby coming out of the woman at all. There's a bunch of cuts and people yelling, then someone's holding a baby. We never actually see it emerge.

So I think your memory of the film may be a bit off. I think you're remembering things that were only implied.

  • Yeah, that would be probably true actually, thanks for the heads up about that :) – natural Aug 30 '17 at 3:33
