Le Film is my digital interpretation of the classic analog Art Deco font of the same name.
Le Film (variously known as Film and Initiales Film) was designed by Marcel Jacno and released in 1927 by Deberny & Peignot of Paris. The characters are conceived as a line of three-dimensional forms viewed from the front and slightly to the right. The letters are negative white shapes defined by the background pattern of elliptical black dots and the solid black "sides" of the 3-D letter.
Although I have only found documentation of a single original font, I have created 2 companion fonts, which, when layered and colored, can be used to highlight the letters and/or the shadowy sides.
