A SELF-MADE FAILURE
Chase Scene Outtakes!!!
After shooting 80 minutes of Super 8 film Dizzy did the unthinkable: he discarded everything in
order to shoot the film in 16mm (like BLANCANIEVES, CLERKS and EL MARIACHI which were later blown up to 35mm). Some of these scenes were never re-shot for the feature length version of the film. The ones that were, were shot with new actors. The Director of Photography for THE ARTIST said: "Today’s black and white is too precise, too sharp. So we shot the whole film in 500 ASA colour so it would be grainier." Dizzy did the opposite: He shot the whole film out doors in bright sunlight in 50 ASA B&W so that there would be hardly be any grain. The transfer from film to HD was done by Cinepost.
