Day 188: Never Send a Girl to do a Woman’s Job
And finally, shot no. 4 in the Noir series. Just like a silly girl, Veda falls for the hit. Does Kitty finish the job Veda couldn’t do? We may never know.
The original vision for this one was much more complicated. I wanted a shadow of Veda coming from outside, her eyes in the peephole Kitty is making in the blinds. But, time didn’t permit. This is actually a composite of two shots, one of Kitty and one of Jack’s shadow. If you’re interested in viewing the entire series, links to the four shots are posted after the shot specs below, which were the same for both Kitty’s and Jack’s shots.
