In episode 5 of The Tomorrow People‘s first season, viewers were introduced to a very effective, very sweaty decision-making tool put in place by our favorite evolutionary friends. When John, as leader, refused to let The Tomorrow People go top-side to have a real night out on the town, Cara challenged him to a jaunt. It appeared she was ready to fight for her right to party.
However, what ensued was not your typical fight. John and Cara used their powers of telekinesis and telepathy to gain possession of a stick and force the other to submit. Spoiler: Cara won. But the real star of the show was the jaunting scene itself. Packed full of special effects, the scene quickly became a fan favorite.
We talked to Tomorrow People stunt coordinator JJ Makaro, along with stars of the scene Peyton List and Luke Mitchell (all separately) about everything from how jaunting was born to how exactly they film a scene full of teleports.
