Hands up! I’m fully aware that the video below of Melanie Pullen’s High Fashion Crime Scenes is simply a slideshow set to Zazou/Budd’s Jhonny Cake, but the images of haute couture clad models, set up in staged vintage crime-scenes could easily pass as frames from some of the greatest noir directors’ works.
Please do yourself the favour of taking a look through Pullen’s site after watching the video to do the images the justice they deserve.
MarBelle has a strange compulsion to watch as many films as he can get his hands on and find jobs that give him a legitimate excuse to drill filmmakers about their work. Directors Notes is the latest incarnation of this disorder and so much cheaper than film school. Twitter: @MarBelle
