|Ed Hopper | Chop Suey (1929)|
This scene is part of the horror sci-fi Legion , however although the diner appears dark and promtes something is about to happen which is dark. This is not necessary exactly what going to happen in our film but displays well the idea I am going for.
|Ed Hooper | Chair Car|
|Ed Hooper | Sun In A Empty Room|
Although these images aren't in a cafe is ineteresting due to the light shining in. Both picture show a dark room which is slightly lightened by the window light. It way I want the cafe to look.
I found this shot I found ideal in some ways for the street scene I like the idea that the street is completely dark and this leaves the character almost as silhouette. Perfect to create a dark tone for the night scene. Plus keeping with the Film Noir tone
This works well once again,The lights give minimal light to the street giving it a coldker twist tone. In essence applying a darker twist.
|William Friedkin | The Exorcist|
A movie influence is no doubt the exocist poster which shows a light shining down on a shadow figure. It is quite affective but I am divided by it being to sinister for our trailer or good use of shadow to play on our dark motive.
