After the jump I’ve got 30 captures from the frenetic night club scene that the editor of Black Swan said was the most complicated scene in the film, involving 1000 manipulated images over just 45 seconds of screen time.

If you thought it was a case of mostly normal club scenes with the odd bit of subtle crazy thrown in, think again. It was probably the exact opposite of that, with only a handful of “wow, a normal looking shot” thrown in.

Obviously, you may want to avoid these images, although it’s hard to classify them as spoilers because you can watch the film 100 times and you still won’t be able to pick out most of this stuff, unless you slow it down.

Now, let’s hop down the rabbit hole.

Let’s begin with 3 shots that are common examples of Natalie here, Natalie there, Natalie everywhere. There are TONS of other frames like this.

And now it gets a bit more trippy and interesting.

I hope you guys enjoyed that because it took way too long to put together ๐Ÿ˜›

    I’d heard about this scene before seeing the movie so I kept waiting for it and waiting for it, refused to blink during the sequence, and still managed not to see half of this.

    That’s still a lot more than I was able to make out in the theatre. Although to be fair, I was mainly looking for boobs.

    Wow, I didn’t notice ANY of the Swan or extra Natalie’s in the commotion…it was just too crazy for my eyes. Very creative of Afronofsky. I can’t wait to see this in action and pick it apart on the blu-ray disc. Thanks for putting that together.

    I wasn’t looking for this either as I was more trying to understand the scene as a whole, but wow!
    Crazy stuff! After I buy the Blue-ray maybe I get to pay more attention to those details! lol

    Great job Daz!

    p.s. those eyes reminds me of wolfman! *ouch*

    I DID notice most of the stuff in that scene.

    But damn, apart from a few scenes (guess which ones), Black Swan was boring and predictable.

    Sooo predictable. Thrillers shouldn’t be.

    Dude…that is awesome! I only noticed about 3 or 4 of those things. I tried SO very hard to see everything but they edited it so well. The club scene is amazing.

    This is the one scene that has me so excited for the Blu-Ray release. I noticed this stuff the second time I saw Black Swan in theaters and have been waiting ever since. I look forward to watching it in slow motion to catch all the things integrated into this scene.

    The amount of work that went into this scene is crazy! Amazing film, I’ve watched it three times now and i’m still discovering little bits i haven’t before. Here’s the club scene in sow motion:
    Not amazing quality, but you can still see alot of the shots :)

    This just proves how much Nina’s mind got f*cked up.

    Wow I never knew these “easter eggs” were there.These scenes pass so fast,it is easy to pass unnoticed.Thanks Dazza.I don’t think the movie’s special features will explain this scene in the Blu-Ray,perhaps in the director’s commentary.
