PROJECT TITLE: Poker Night
Poker Night is a short film inspired by gangster films such as “The Godfather”, “GoodFellas” and “Casino Royale”.
As someone who takes pride in their cinematography skills, I wanted to showcase my ability as well as challenge myself with a genre of film I have never attempted before. I have also taken Influence from Film Noir and French New Wave.
I have followed the works of Quintin Tarantino for a long time and have always appreciated his shot selection and unique style. This is is something I always want to add into my own films.
Poker Night tells a story without character dialogue. The music and poetic narration work together to create emotion portrayed by the characters. As well as the cinematography the colour was important in executing my idea. I hope you enjoy the film as much as I did making it.
