Film Fridays: ‘Diamond of Kohinoor’

film fridays

The Kohinoor Diamond is indeed real (it’s one of the British royal family’s crown jewels), but the 16mm Diamond of Kohinoor, shot by Full Sail Film students in late 2010, is not a real account of events … at least, to the best of our knowledge, that is.

The film, directed by grads Andrew Bond and Ryan Redmond, is set in 1930s New York City and involves an arrogant newspaper editor, absent-minded police deputy, and a ruthless gangster all searching for the elusive diamond. The biggest challenge for the film noir-inspired period piece was building a realistic looking 1930s set on a low budget, and we think they did a pretty good job pulling it off. Check it out below.
