“In the first pass, we have a body double stand in. And the camera - it’s this awesome thing called a Technodolly - will memorize all the movements in the scene and repeat them automatically every time we reshoot with me as a different character. Then we take the double out, and when I shoot, there’s a tennis ball, an X taped on the wall, or a dot where my clones are standing, and I have to remember where they move throughout the scene. I also have an earwig in my ear that plays recordings of my other characters’ lines. So I’m basically talking to the air the whole time.” - Tatiana Maslany (on playing multiple clones in one scene)

Film Noir (from the French meaning Black Film) is a genre of cinema that emerged during the early 1940s and continued until the late 1950s. It is characterised by it’s distintive stylisation of cinematography and it’s focus on crime, mystery and sex. Taking many cues from early German expressionism, Film Noir offered an immersive thematic experience that was very different to that of other contemporary melodramas. Several techniques and plot devices came to define the genre, including voiceovers, the inventive use of light and shadow, the protagonist’s need to seek out some truth, and the famed ‘femme fatale’ figure.
