So I recently got assigned a project in my Motion Design class where we have to make a 30 second commercial for a weekly program that is Film Noir. Now, upon doing this, I ended up coming across with this:
This is incomplete. I was going to add the tv show and time to watch it at the end and as a voiceover to connect the story together. Regardless, my teacher said I did it completely wrong because I needed to focus more on Motion Graphics rather than a film assignment, and that is giving me trouble because Film Noir was at a time where the Motion Graphics was not like it is now, and my teacher is wanting me to come up with a modern representation of motion graphics and I really don't want to screw up this assignment a second time, which is why I wanted to come on here and get advice from pros that know what they are doing. Plus, there is no examples of this at all and I think input from you guys would help a lot.
So here is what I want to ask you guys:
1. What would be a good way to represent motion graphics in a Film Noir Style?
2. Do you think involving actual footage in it could help a lot or would it hurt it?
3. If you got assigned this project, what elements would you use in it to make it convincing?
