When Tad (Daniel Kucan) is video interviewing Bobby Ross (Paul Lekakis) in Bobby's dressing room, there is a shot of someone, with his face partially obscured, presumably Tad (since he is making a documentary), holding the camera and asking a question through a brass latticework screen. However, it is clear that it is not Tad who is holding the camera and speaking, but John Webster (Jonathan Wade-Drahos). Then Bobby answers, and when the person holding the camera moves to another angle, out from behind the screen, now it is clearly Tad who is speaking and holding the camera. Only two people are supposed to be in the scene.
After the screening of "Circuit," the fake documentary film within this film, the camera cuts to the exterior theater marquis where "Circuit, A Film by Tad Sawyer" morphs into "Circuit (2001), A Film by Dirk Shafer."
