Chalk - Finally A New Film Noir

1 post in this topic

Hello Fellow Noir Lovers,

I always enjoy seeing new noir movies emerge and push the boundaries of classic noir archetypes. Because of this I've developed my own film noir and would like to share its story with you.

Chalk is a short comedic film noir about a washed up detective looking for clarity in a world full of corruption, murder, and chalk. This film explores the cost of self-preservation. Set among a fictional backdrop, a city of chalk slowly being replaced by dry-erase, we explore the affect gentrification has on individuals by using comedy to approach this sensitive subject.

You might be wondering why Chalk? Well, can you think of anything more black and white than chalk on blackboard? 

If I still have your attention then check out the film's website: http://www.thechalkmovie.com

You might just be surprised how much this makes sense.
