Film Noir

Christopher Tevebaugh Plus

Film Noir means "black film", they typically derived from 1930's hard boiled crime fiction. The stories weaved intricate tales of crime, murder, sex, and corruption. they are often but not always in black and white and use shadow for mood or character. From now on I will no longer be excepting trailers or anything over 15 minutes in duration.

    This is our first film of the year, we were commissioned by Neha’s Dad, Virenbhai, to film his daughter’s beautiful and traditional event, at the Sattavis Patidar Centre in Wembley. We were then told that the couple were getting married in India, two weeks after the Sagai & Sanji event. They wanted us to produce a short film highlighting the event which could be displayed for their friends and family at the reception as the couple made their entrance.
    We worked day and night to complete this project before they flew out of the country. We hope you enjoy it as much as we liked working on this film.
