24 Hour Party People

So I just finished watching the DV triumph "24 Hour Party People." While I watched, I was shocked by how fluid the blending between film and DV was. There were the standard giveaways, but I think they were so subtle as to not affect the filmic fantasy.

So, questions are:

1) Does anyone have any technical info on that film? Camera types, etc. The outtakes seem to have brief glimpses of equipment.

2) After watching special features, it is clear that the framerate is a function of post. That is, it was shot fully interlaced at (probably PAL) 50i. The outtakes seem to indicate this. But the 24p look is so crisp! It's clearer than the Filmlook process too.

So if anyone has any info on the film (tape, whatever) let me know. Because that's how to take interlaced DV and turn it into a major motion picture. Wow, is all I can say.

Not sure about that movie. However I do know you can get a filmic look with magic bullet, I doubt thats what they used, probably a more profesh approach.

Yeah, IMDB's tech specs leave something seriously to be desired. That's the final print they have under specs, anyway.

It looks worse on the big screen than on a dvd.

I didn't know this was a DV feature. Wish I had seen it in the theater. It's a great movie if like me you think Joy Division was one of the best freaking bands in the last 30 years. Others might not be as interested.

About the only thing I know about the filming is they recreated the concerts and then cut to the real performances for the closeups. It was pretty seamless. The guy they got to play Ian Curtis looked just like him. Creepy. I would think that if the original performances were shot on video then the filmmakers would have shot those sequences on video as well. If film, film.
