NOIR 2.0 – WESTWORLD: Black & White – Part 2

noir

NOIR 2.0 drains colour, bringing life to the cinematography of contemporary films and television series re-imagining them in glorious BLACK & WHITE.

The cinematography of the classic, stylish  film noirs influenced generations of filmmakers. The restricted camera movement and lack of colour to emphasize themes forced artists to craft provocative compositions to elicit emotions and heighten the tension. The craft is still alive! Today, directors embellish camera angles and lightning to create atmosphere and help absorb us into their vision.

By envisioning movies and television series in black and white, it shines a spotlight on the cinematography. While we can do this at home by adjusting the colour settings on our television, the deliberate adjustment of brightness and contrast levels further enhances the overall vision.

This photographic series aims to remind the audience how genre films respect the art while delivering on the popcorn.

Volume VI of NOIR is the second edition to feature the incredible new HBO show WESTWORLD from incredible minds like Michael Crichton and JJ Abrams. The sci-fi concept is filled with mystery and tons of twists. The series is also beautifully photographed on a cinematic level with some stunning compositions and compelling cinematography.

Stay tuned for even more WESTWORLD: NOIR coming soon.

    1. Right on. Yeah. Try watching your fav flicks or shows in black and white sometime. Play with the contrast and brightness. Have fun. Get nerdy with it 😉 I’m glad you dug on some of the imagery here a bit more. I’m just a guy trying to spread the love… with a free graphics program hehehe.

    1. Thanks for tuning in, Cindy. I’m so glad you like the Noir series (and Westworld itself – totally amazing). I will definitely run with your recommendations. Thanks for dropping in a couple of options. I don’t have Inception on my list, but that’s a great addition. Skin is one of my fav flicks, so you know that’s coming soon 😉 As for Kingdom, I haven’t seen that yet. Thanks for the tip. I hope you like the next Noir!
