Simulating film Noir- point 12

Every one thinks of film noir as classic black and white, Cigar, gangster type films. I will aim to incorporate gangsters and I will use low levels of light. The props I will use will be, guns, cigars, old cars and suits, bowler hats that look like shabby shique.

Point 11-Inspiration/ How i’m going to make my work look convincing

FILM NOIRSlide1 Slide2Slide1

I will take inspiration from films like

Samuel Fuller’s Pickup on South Street (1953), Road to Perdition (2002) and superhero action films like Batman Begins (2005)

All work will be in black and white, it’ll be clear and organised. Titles will be point numbers, keywords and simple easy to understand short sentences.

The shots will be well rehearsed in the correct location

I will use handheld devices for the most part as I think it gives the shots a better atmosphere.

The lighting I will use, will play a big part in the blog as the them is film noir. I will use a mix of natural light and three point lighting. Also an overhead light to simulate shadows.

Cinematography- Shots, angles and framing/composition. I will judge these for each shot.

Editing-I will use ~Adobe premier 9 will be my friend here.

Film Noir genre- Point 6

A style or genre of cinematographic film marked by a mood of pessimism, fatalism, and menace.

The term was originally applied (by a group of French critics) to American thriller or detective films made in the period 1944–54 and to the work of directors such as Orson Welles, Fritz Lang, and Billy Wilder.

It’s also French term meaning “black film,” or film of the night, inspired by the Series Noir, a line of cheap paperbacks that translated hard-boiled American crime authors and found a popular audience in France.
