Defective Noir

by Gleet Street Riot


Every 48 team probably gets a lifetime pass to do one black and white noir, much like you get one pass to do mockumentary as much as I cringe when I both turn up in the competition. Here we are talking about the former as a hard boiled detective investigates a crime.

Some decent dialogue to be sure, but the run on sentences just felt a bit like word soup to me if I'm being brutally honest. Shadowplay was decent, but would have loved to see you properly grade this, bring your deepest blacks to play and let us get visual insights into this city of scum that would have narratively driven us an audience. By not grading even if your lighting and framing was nice it just played like a straightforward noir, penis chalkline nonwithstanding.
