In The Flame's Truth, the protagonist (played by myself) takes extreme measures to destory a past that has come back to bite him.
This film was part of the 'Genre Study' final project for Still & Moving Images. Ari, Joris, and I chose to focus on the film styles and tropes of Western' and Noirs and bring them out of their time period and location and into the city in the current decade. Our attempt at recreating the Noir style was in the lighting and story itself, while, the Western style was reflected in the duel, the extreme close-ups on the eyes, and the big, bold, font choice. The film was also scored by myself and the other actor in the film (Sage Beasley).
