Directors, scriptwriters, and makeup artists are ready to do a lot to create a perfect image on the big screen that millions of viewers around the world will believe. Very often, long hours of rehearsals, practicing, and takes are needed to create the necessary results. Sometimes, great acting is not enough, and they need stunt doubles, great editing, and very realistic graphics.

This might be kind of a dumb question to ask but are medics a regular appearance behind the scenes? If they are, how often do they come in handy?
Literally most of the movies are my favourite.
