Learn the basics of three point lighting and some of the tools for shooting Film Noir so you can start to analyse the look of films shot in this unique style. Then apply your knowledge to making your very own film noir.
If you’ve ever seen a movie, you’ve seen opening titles of some kind. Opening credits have existed pretty much since the beginning of moving pictures, and they are as varied as the films themselves.
“THE FILM before THE FILM” is a short documentary that traces the evolution of title design through the history of film.
This short film was a research project at the BTK (Berliner Technische Kunsthochschule) that takes a look at pioneers like Saul Bass, Maurice Binder and Kyle Cooper by showing the transitions from early film credits to the inclusion of digital techniques, a resurgence of old-school style, and filmmakers' love of typography in space.

An influential figure in film history, John Cassavetes is known as the father of independent film. His self-financed films portray his interest in the human individual and his or her emotional experiences, while the works themselves exemplify the non-traditional ways that a filmmaker is able to take in order to bring a story onto the screen.
Art films aren't necessarily photography. It's feeling. If we can capture a feeling of a people, of a way of life, then we made a good picture. - John Cassavetes
