I'm Making a Short Film Noir 10-15 minutes long.

It's a film with no dialogue and it's a black and white movie with some contrasting Green and Red colours on several occasions (similar to Sin City).
Since there's no dialogue in the movie it's held together with the sound and the acting. The sound will many be everyday background noises such as Car engines running, dripping sink, footsteps and so on. It is therefore of utmost importance that the camera-crew has professional sound equipment.
There will therefore also be required a sample of background noises filmed with that very equipment.

I also need a Camera-Crew who's familiar with Lighting, setting up and shooting a film Noir.
So having an example of previous work on a film noir is also crucial.

It's a drama with unintentional comedic moments.

It's about a man in his mid/ late 40's who's suffering from anxiety and depression and is having a hard time coping with it and it is affecting his daily life.
He tries to take action on several occasion by going to the doctor's surgery to get a referral so he can see a psychologist without having to spend a fortune on it.

However, the taboo subject is all between the lines and is up to the viewer itself to come to that conclusion.

The depression is illustrated by the behaviour of the man and the sounds we hear in the movie.

So to conclude what is required:

- A camera crew.
- Experience in filming Film Noir.
- Professional Light and sound equipment.
- Sound examples.
- Example of previous film noir work.

The Lead actor is required to have great miming skills to express the emotions needed. It is what holds the movie together.

The project is unpaid but the project will be sent into several Film festivals in London.

So there will be potential exposure.
Great starting project if you have great skills and good ideas but are new in the film industry.
