Allen Daviau (The Falcon and the Snowman, Avalon, Bugsy, Twilight Zone, The Color Purple) takes students back to the golden age of cinematography - the 1920’s. He painstakingly recreates the shooting style by employing the filtration, vignetting, aspect ratios and shot coverage of the period. In doing so he evokes the spirit and dynamic of the B&W silent screen masterpieces. Denis Lenoir (Monsieur Hire, DaddyNostalgie/These Foolish Things, Paris Awakes, Shuttlecock) creates an intriguing comparison to the work of Daviau by using modern cinematic techniques featuring a moving camera. He shoots with both colour and B&W stock to make the comparison complete.
