Film Noir is most readily understood as a visual style in cinema. This rotoscoped animated short attempts to connote the ideas and essence of the filmic style. It incorporates the distinctive soundtrack, angular composition, and highly patterned frames to create the claustrophobic and neon-lit city scape. The femme-fatale introduces the detective into the corrupt world of sleazy hotels, rigged games, and dubious characters. As the detective navigates these sinister, smoke-filled city streets, he realizes the illusion of “The American Dream” and the reality of The American Nightmare.
