I made this short film a couple of years ago when I was trying to get into making videos for real. As in trying to learn proper techniques and processes. This was a submission for the course. There were several factors involved in the end result. Storywise it is probably lacking. It is actually 'experimental', so it is more about the style and feel rather than actual story. I had real fun doing it but have not tried anything similar since. Most of the stuff I do now is of a documentary style. The film I'm linking here is meant to be noir, but in the style of Taggart and possibly The Bill. There were limitaions and little niggles with it that I am well aware of. But any pointers from the experts is always welcome. On a side note, the police arrived on the scene and asked if I was filming a Channel 4 documentary. Someone had reported the screaming, so at least that was proof of the 'realism' I was going for! I had to ask the actor to prove he was alive! My tip to others, let the Police know in advance if you are filming any scenes like this. Luckily they saw the funny side.
