ENTER |TV & Media Avatar Contest| Film Noir
 
Thanks for all the votes in the last contest, Here: http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=128469 Power laces! :rommie:

It is time for a new contest...I am not sure if this has been done before but I wanted to go with something to do with "Film Noir".

Quote:

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.

Film noirs encompass a range of plots—the central figure may be a private eye (The Big Sleep), a plainclothes policeman (The Big Heat), an aging boxer (The Set-Up), a hapless grifter (Night and the City), a law-abiding citizen lured into a life of crime (Gun Crazy), or simply a victim of circumstance (D.O.A.). Though the noir mode was originally identified among American productions, films now customarily described as noir have been made around the world. From the 1960s onward, many pictures have come out that share attributes with film noirs of the classic period, often treating noir conventions in a self-reflexive manner. Such latter-day works in a noir mode are often referred to as neo-noirs. The tropes of film noir have inspired parody since the mid-1940s.

Looking for some classics here...but it is up to you if you find something recent(neo-noir) that works with the description. SF noir is allowed as well.

I was so close to using this exact picture, but settled on Touch of evil instead.

This is a great pic. Welles certainly had a good face for film :techman:
