Melissa Benoist is dead & was replaced by a look alike. So let me begin this by telling you a little about melissa. Up until this point she was so used to being able to live a normal life and now that she was famous, she couldn’t handle the paparazzi, so she decided to hire a look alike to walk around Vancouver for her and pose for the paparazzi.

Ok kiddos let me explain you a thing right now:
If you are watching a video and the sound is clear, that video was staged.
You ever actually listen to the shit you record in your phone? You ever wonder why your home movies sound so terrible?
Let me let you in on a little filmmaker’s secret ok:
IF THE MICROPHONE IS MOUNTED TO THE CAMERA THEN THE AUDIO WILL PROBABLY SOUND LIKE SHIT.
IF YOU CANNOT ADJUST THE RECORDING VOLUME AT THE TIME OF RECORDING YOUR AUDIO WILL PROBABLY SOUND LIKE SHIT.
So the next time you see a video that seems horrible or awful or sweet oh what-fucking-ever, listen to it.
Cause if it looks windy and there’s no wind noise? It’s staged.
If the camera is about 20 ft from the subject yet sounds like the person is sitting right next to you? It’s staged.
Granted there are ways around this, but those require an actual crew. So if you’re watching a documentary that has an actual budget, then yeah sure it might not be staged (though that’s been known to happen in docs as well).
But if this video is being passed off as “candid” or surreptitious “phone” recording, just know it’s fake. It’s staged. There is only so much you can fix in post.
