Fun Fact

Did you know that all films are shot upside down and backwards?

It's true... During a shoot for College Humor on Wednesday, we learned that films are naturally upside down and backwards, so in order to make them work for the viewing public, the actors must reverse everything they're doing, from speech, to walking. Also, the camera is loaded upside down.

So when you take the film to get processed, it is then flipped over, and the action is changed to way we're comfortable with it (forwards).

Additionally, film is in slow motion, so everybody must run around at double the speed they normally would.

Strange, but true.

I'm enthralled. That boggles my mind.
