Inspired by director George Miller's own statements on the ideal presentation,
Black and Chrome makes the brilliant action flick black and white.
One thing I've noticed is that the default position for everyone is to de-saturate post-apocalyptic movies. There's only two ways to go: make them black and white—the best version of this movice is black and white, but people reserve that for art movies now. The other version is to really go all-out on the color. The usual teal and orange thing? That's all the colors we had to work with. The desert's orange an the sky is teal, and we could either desaturate it or crank it up, to differentiate the movie. Plus, it can get really tiring watching this dull, desaturated color, unless you call all the way out and make it black and white.
So they did!
George Miller has said that the best version of his film is in black and white, with no dialogue. BLACK & CHROME is an attempt to realize Miller’s alternate vision. The cinematography, the editing, the sound design, and the score, are now represented in a completely new experience.
