    Un Chien Andalou and L'age D'or weren't short films. According to my old college film professor, he and Luis Buñuel were crazy drunks who drank up all of the money that Buñuel's mother had given them to make the film and then had to put Un Chien Andalou together very quickly and on the cheap. Dali's sense of visual "shock therapy" made the fim as much as the plot. If you haven't seen either one, check out this opening scene from Un Chien Andalou.

    He also did set design for Hitchcock's film, Spellbound and worked with Man Ray in creating surrealist photography.

    You don't, you make sure you get it right from the start!

    "this was shot live. It took 26 tries to get it over five hours"

    My question is, how do you throw cats to make em look like on the canvas, or rather actually, how do you throw cats, the canvas was painted in afterwards on the photo (look at the shadow from the easel on the floor...).



    EDIT: Interesting, the picture on my flickr link, has a painting in it, but the one in this thread don't, anyone?

    EDIT2: Here's the explanation

    Felinik,
    The one on your flickr link is the one that was published. The one in the original post is un-retouched. Note the wires holding up the easels and painting, the stand under the step-stool and the hands of an assistant holding the chair. These were taken out on a retouching table or by airbrush for the final image and it was cropped to remove any trace of another person in the room The painting behind Dali was added at the same time. Still pretty amazing. I'm glad I wasn't the guy who had to round up those cats and throw them again, after even two times, let alone 25 or so. You can see one of them gets pretty wet in this take.

    EASmithV,
    The eyeball in that shot was from a pig. We studied it in school when talking about how the viewer will connect what happens in a scene with what happens just before and just after- the human need to impose a story-line draws us to see cause and effect in two different shots. It gave me the willies then and it still does.
