The Academy Awards are this coming Sunday and French film The Artist is gaining momentum as a dark horse candidate for the Best Picture. The film stands out from the rest by being shot entirely in black and white with the older 4:3 aspect ratio, the majority of the film being silent and using a strong instrumental score to guide the story.

The Artistifier application draws from the film’s unique characteristics and allows the user to convert any YouTube video into a silent film, complete with captions.
