Forgotten Silver is a mockumentary which details the prodigious life of "lost" filmmaker Colin McKenzie and his incredible advances that were lost to history...until now. This supergenius filmmaker, posthumously inducted into the pantheon of cinema greats, made incredible advances in filmmaking technology, supposedly making a talkie in 1908 and using color film in 1911, but madness and poverty and the usual industry tolls drove him into obscurity.

A wide shot from the climactic moments of "Salome" supposedly cost so much that it amounted to half the film's budget. The shot comprised dozens of extras and extensive digital compositing and engineering. See more »
Also relating to the close-up: there are many in the footage from "The Worrior Season" which was made before "Solome" where Colin supposedly invents it. See more »

Peter Jackson and Costa Boeates decided to make this great mockumentary about a man called Colin McKenzie, a man who invented such things as color film, audio film and above all, made the first full length feature movie.
Apparently it was quite a successful hoax in New Zealand, people really did buy it. And I really can't blame them, as most of the fabricated film material really looks like almost hundred years old, almost destroyed film.
And there are some very convincing famous film people, like Sam Neil, telling their knowledge of this McKenzie.
Even the tone of the film isn't actually very funny, even thought there are some things in it that are so absurd, that they make you laugh.
Over all well made mockumentary.
