Entry Thread for "Film Noir" 8th to 14th November 2010
« on: November 08, 2010, 06:54:45 PM »
This is the entry thread for  " Film Noir".  I really like these moody film noir type shots and always wanted to try one, so what better way than to make it the comp theme?

"Film noir is a cinematic term used primarily to describe stylish Hollywood crime dramas, particularly those that emphasize cynical attitudes and sexual motivations. Hollywood's classic film noir period is generally regarded as stretching from the early 1940s to the late 1950s. Film noir of this era is associated with a low-key black-and-white visual style that has roots in German Expressionist cinematography. Many of the prototypical stories and much of the attitude of classic noir derive from the hardboiled school of crime fiction that emerged in the United States during the Depression."  (Definition nicked from Wikipedia)

I didn't think anyone was going to play  :'(

So I made half an hour this morning with a hat and a toy gun :)
