Here is a six minute behind the scenes featurette for The Artist titled "The Making of a Hollywood Love Story.”
The film was conceived and directed by French filmmaker Michel Hazanavicius and has been getting a substantial amount of Oscar buzz. The B&W silent film explores “Hollywood's silent era, following an actor on the way out as "talkies" start to take over. The featurette includes interviews with the entire cast, endless clips, and some behind-the-scenes moments in the later half of them dancing their hearts out and shooting scenes (in color!).”
Check out the featurette below and in HD at Apple:
Hollywood, 1927. George Valentin is a successful silent movie star. The advent of the talkies will sound the death knell for his career. But for young extra Peppy Miller, it seems the sky's the limit — stardom awaits.
The Artist is playing in select theaters now and may expand.
