movies in colour

What gives a movie its feel? Of course, the story, sound, actors, and a whole lot of other things factor into the equation – but the colours of a film sure are important when it comes it expressing its unique mood and character. Just ask Roxy Radulescu. The Illinois-based graphic designer has been conducting some serious research into what colours appear in certain films. Below are a few of the frames she’s analysed and the particular colours that appear in them. Head over to Roxy’s blog, Movies in Colour, to see loads more movies dissected from a pigment point-of-view, and shoot the lady a request to study the colours in your favourite flick.
