The world of container shipping is crucial to our everyday existence – whether it be from everyday storage to business to advertisements. Some may be surprised to learn that shipping containers even take on a role in movies.
Containers in movies serve quite a few purposes. Their durability, stability, and ease of manipulating/cutting make them one of the most desired pieces of equipment for any movie studio. Due to their structure and size, studios can turn them into hotels, restaurants, homes, offices, simple background props and much more!
The movie “Step up 4 Revolution” uses shipping containers in a unique way by incorporating them into their dance routine. This dance-based movie features a dance scene that takes place at the sea front surrounded by shipping containers.
The shipping containers are incorporated into the dance routine with various characters dancing on top of them, and a dancer swinging rhythmically from a container that is positioned on the edge of two other shipping containers, leaving a gap in the middle for him to hang down into.
The routine also involves dancers falling off the top container onto a modified shipping container that has been fitted with a trampoline-like surface and bouncing back up again in rhythm to the music.
The movie characters run up the side of shipping containers and perform all types of different acrobatics on them, demonstrating how useful a prop these containers can be.
It appears that in addition to being used to transport goods, shipping containers can even take part in dance routines.
