The famous shot from The Wizard of Oz where "sepia-tone" Dorothy opens the door and walks out into Technicolor Oz was done by having an extra wearing the same costume but painted brown. The extra opens the door, and then Judy Garland (in her colorful costume) walks into frame and out the door.Interesting detail?

From Redditor u/StatusLoquat8:
In Little Shop of Horrors, for the scenes with large Audrey II to make them smoother the scenes had to be filmed in slow motion (12 frame per second instead of 24). This meant the actors had to act and lip sync in slow motion and the scenes were then sped up in post production.Interesting detail?
