The Greatest Showman features three young kids running into the circus it was one of the most challenging shots of the Rodeo team . The plate for this sequence was shot entirely on green screen, with just the actors in place. They were tagged to build the entire shot in CG, from the reflection of the circus on the puddle and the water effects as the kids run through it, to the environment and, of course, the iconic circus tent.
