Anyone been to the movie "I am not a Serial Killer" ? This was shot on Super 16 but I would have seen it digitally projected. In the opening credits, then in a scene with Christopher Lloyd working out in a gym and in one scene after that, a hair is quite noticeable on screen for a few moments. Don't know whether it was a hair in the camera gate or something that crept in at the digital transfer stage. With the pristine presentation that one gets with digital projection, it's actually comforting to see something like this (for those of us who grew up with film projection and remember the odd gremlin creeping in now and then). Perhaps the film crew or production team noticed the presence of the hair and decided to leave it in as part of the movie's "quirky aesthetic".

If the hair goes within the shot.. even checking the gate they wouldn't see it, as already gone.. I guess it was seen in the rushes.. ? and decided not worth a re shot.. or not able to.. or it was placed digitally to make the film look organic .. :)
