From the instructor:

This stunt-based effect was actually suggested in the comments, but it's also one that I actually tried back when I was about 17 and I was making a home-made action film with my friends. In the original scene my character was being held prisoner in a car and was being taken for questioning, and when the car slows down at a bend in the road, I jump out and escape. Now this demonstrates how this scene would usually be done the easy way - you break the scene down in to several shots and it is simply a quick montage so you think you've seen something that didn't actually happen.
