    • This effect is only possible in black and white because they painted the actress' face with red and blue makeup and just changed a filter on the camers so that it would switch which face you see, Corridor Crew reacted to this exact scene in their VFX artists react series

    • Ok so what they actually did here was use 2 lenses on the camera (red and blue I believe) and applied makeup to the actress that would only be visible when the blue lense was on. So they transitioned the lenses during the shot to reveal the makeup without having to use any cuts in the footage.

    • So the way they did this was the makeup was only visible via a red filter, and so when she looks normal they are seeing through a blue filter and then just transition filters to show the makeup (wouldn’t work when not black and white obviously). Corridor Digital did a vid about it, I’ll try and find

    • Probably panchromatic film with blue or green makeup and then a red filter was added, making the blue or green makeup turn dark as the filter cuts those colors.

    • This is an effect only possible in black and white where you put on makeup with the same hue as the lens. When the lens is on, it hides the makeup. Once the lens is removed during the shot, you can see the makeup!

    • She was wearing a wig and had the black makeup on. It only works with black and white movies but they put a black transparent screen to where the black makeup wasn’t visible and then they removed it giving the effect she became a witch.

    • The spectrum for color grading in cameras is the RGB spectrum. They achieved this effect by beginning the take in blue and transitioning to red to reveal the makeup that was already applied. The idea was one color setting could pick up the effect and one couldn’t thus concealing the practical makeup

    • If I had to guess they gave her shiny makeup and then when she pulled the wig off they put the black Matte board next to her face and it pulled away the light. Also they may have slipped in a dark amber gel in front of the fresnel light.

    • ok so if anyone’s curious, the makeup was already on the actor, but the camera cannot see it at first because of the fact that theyre using a red filter for the scene, which is impossible to see being that the movie’s in black and white. the reason that you cannot see the makeup is because it’s in a

The make-up doesn't show with the red filter and when she rips the wig off they switched to the blue filter which allows us to see the make-up thats been there the whole time

    • Fun fact, this effect was made by using colored lighting and special paint, bc it's black and white it doesn't matter what hue the lighting is so they used a special paint that darkens under red light and just faded in red light during the transition to show the makeup

    • It’s not film splicing it’s even better. Back then they didn’t have color cameras so they could put color screens over the lenses and you wouldn’t know. The makeup was one color and they used a filter over the lens that would hide it. Then they slide the filter off exposing the colored makeup.
