My name is Benjamin and I am a cinema and photography major at Ithaca College in southwestern NY state. I am a big time fan of film noir, and currently in the process of making my senior thesis film, which will be a black and white detective drama called "The Last Raid"
I have launched a fundraising campaign for the film through indiegogo.com. I am trying to get word out about the campaign, and a friend suggested I join this forum both for my love of noir and to spread the word about my film to fellow noir enthusiasts. If you could please check out this campaign and spread the word about it to other noir lovers, I would be very grateful and it would make a big difference to me and the other students working on the film.

I would also like to take the time to introduce myself to the forum. I'm from Colorado and fell in love with vintage films after seeing "Casblanca" for the first time. I am a big fan of the classic 1930s and 1940s films ("Maltese Falcon", "The Big Sleep", etc), though I have recently developed an appreciation for some neo-noir, such as "Klute" (I hope someone else out there has seen this!).
I would love to meet more of the people on this forum. I'm so glad to have discovered other film noir lovers!
