Spider-Man picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Spider-Man is rescuing Mary Jane from falling to her death from the balcony, he catches her and spins his web to the balcony to save her and they bungie to just inches from the ground. As they are preparing to bounce back up the shot rotates 90 degrees and you can see the counter weight that pulls them back up coming down to the ground. It's a weird one, this - there's a sound effect as the weight comes into view, so it's meant to be there (or else the sound's just a cover), but it can't be anything he attached his web to, as it was stuck straight onto the balcony. If it's falling, they should be too - his web's not pivoting around anything. (01:06:50)

Suggested correction: They bounce back because of the elasticity of the web. That falling block is just a falling piece similar to the long one that is already on the ground, it's not a counter weight.

Red Dragon picture

Visible crew/equipment: When we first see the "Tooth Fairy" he is lifting weights in a room full of mirrors. If you look close, you can see one or more crew members reflected in some of the mirrors. The most obvious is a man standing, whom I am guessing to be the director or a grip.

Death to Smoochy picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the ice skating scene at the end of the movie, Shelton and others are saying good bye to Smoochy. Buggy fires, and the camera goes to Shelton falling to the ground. If you look at Shelton's head, you can see the special effects tub that shoots air (or something) out, to give the impression a bullet has just gone into Shelton's suit.
