The theme is up to you. If you want a future scene: go ahead. Aslong the style is film noir. Most of the modeling should be done in anim8or. Rendering not necessary, but it's just black and white so it should easily be done in anim8or.

You can create everything as long it film noir style, which means: black and white, lots of shadows, low key lighting, suspense, a bit of a depressing ambience... etc.

True Dwsel - and it's always good to get some comments to see if youre heading in the right direction!

About your model - what did you use to UVmap it? Just some hints about the UVs; try to make the blocks all square so the texture won't be stretched (this is mostly good except the floor in front of the door), and try to keep them all the same size, now I don't know how many texture maps you are going to use, but within one texture map you will want to make it so that the squares are the same size so that the final textures will all be the same resolution.
(here a good example of all square and the same size blocks on a model http://www.3dworldmag.com/files/2011/05/TDW141.r_unfold.screen1.psd_1.jpg)

Good luck with your entry, cant wait to see it!
