Speak Up Archive: Dark and Fleshy: The Color of Top Grossing Movies At some point last year I subscribed to e-mail updates from Box Office Mojo , thinking that weekly box office results was information I should be regularly privy too. Needless to say, I was bored after the first few weeks. On one occasion, though, the e-mail had a link for a list of the top grossing NC-17-rated movies of all time. Now was fun information. was at the top of the list — a movie so ridiculed as to become a punch line but not awful enough where people wouldn’t mind sitting through it to see “ Jessie Spano ”, all grown up, do the naughty hoppitty poppitty. Back then I hadn’t realized that right next to the NC-17 top grossing movies were the same lists according to the rest of the MPAA ratings . After all, it’s only 11 posters where black is the predominant color and another 7 where it’s a dark-hued background that dominates.

DOs and DON’Ts – Colour – Inspiration Bit Did you know that colour and visual elements activate the right brain (emotions), while the printed words activate the left brain (logic)? Colour and Typography remain to be the two most important elements in design. When you harmoniously combine them all you attract a quicker attentionx to the subject, reinforce impact and recognition, help in establishing powerful identities and brand, set a mood. Today we’ll examine the DOs and DON’Ts in designing with colour, and next time we’ll investigate the topic of Typography. Babies are colour-dominant: they are more attracted by colour than form. DO take time to learn the colour wheel. made up of three primaries: red, blue and yellow. Every colour has a temperature: from the red/yellow side of the spectrum it’s warm, and from the blue/purple side it’s cool. DON’T miss on understanding the basic colour wheel rules: Most colours look great when combined with the shades in various values or intensities. DO analyze the colour undertones.

Open letter to Google: free VP8, and use it on YouTube - Free Software Foundation Dear Google, With your purchase of On2, you now own both the world's largest video site (YouTube) and all the patents behind a new high performance video codec -- VP8. Just think what you can achieve by releasing the VP8 codec under an irrevocable royalty-free license and pushing it out to users on YouTube? You can end the web's dependence on patent-encumbered video formats and proprietary software (Flash). To sit on this technology or merely use it as a bargaining chip would be a disservice to the free world, while bringing at best limited short-term benefits to your company. Why this would be amazing The world would have a new free format unencumbered by software patents. You have the leverage to make such free formats a global standard. This ability to offer a free format on YouTube, however, is only a tiny fraction of your real leverage. But even some smaller actions would also have an impact. We all want you to do the right thing.

Amazing high quality artworks in various categories from great designers all over the globe. Quote by George Bernard Being happy… Sometimes I pretend to be normal… [ | The Topics :: Tarkovsky on Color Cinema ] Maria Chugunova interviews Tarkovsky This is an excerpt of a transcript of an interview with Tarkovsky, conducted by Maria Chugunova for To the Screen, 12 December 1966. In the following excerpt he speaks about color vs. black-and-white film, Andrei Rublov, Antonioni, and Kurosawa. See this page for additional comments on usage of color in cinema. Reference: The first English translation of this interview (in its entirety) appears as an Appendix in Time Within Time: The Diaries 1970-1986, Seagull Books Private Limited, Calcutta, 1991, pp. 356-358. What is your view of colour? At the moment, I don't think colour film is anything more than a commercial gimmick. Colour film as a concept uses the aesthetic principles of painting, or colour photography. What about Antonioni? The Red Desert is the worst of his films after Il Grido. What about colour in your own film? We only used it in Rublov's paintings. What would you say about the transition from black-and-white to colour? No.

Colour / color tools, palettes, schemes and theory Colour and emotion are closely related, so it makes sense to pay particular attention to the colour we choose. This list of 48 tools and resources will help, and I’ve separated the links into the following categories: colour palettes and combinations (#1-6), colour theory (#7-16), colour tools (#17-41), colour patterns (#42-44), and colour code (#45+). Colour palettes and combinations 1/ COLOURlovers “COLOURlovers gives people who use color – whether for ad campaigns, logo design, or in architectural specification – a place to check out a world of color, compare color palettes, comment on news and read color-related articles / interviews.” 2/ Nature’s Color Palette “Nature provides some of the most striking and beautiful color palettes imaginable! 3/ Color combinations – cure for designers block “Choosing the right color combination is vital for any design – logos included. 4/ Color combinations, schemes and palettes 5/ “ has been around since March 2005.

Scalable Inman Flash Replacement Scalable Inman Flash Replacement (sIFR) is an open source JavaScript and Adobe Flash dynamic web fonts implementation, enabling the replacement of text elements on HTML web pages with Flash equivalents. It was initially developed by Mike Davidson and improved by Mark Wubben. It is a scalable variety of HTML text-to-flash replacement pioneered by Shaun Inman. Overview[edit] CSS support in web browsers did not, at the time of sIFR's creation, allow webpages to dynamically include web fonts, so there was no guarantee that fonts specified in CSS or HTML would show as intended, as the browsing user may or may not have had the specified font installed in their system. sIFR embeds a font in a Flash element that displays the text, pre-empting the need for a font to have been manually pre-installed on a user's system. A common technique is to use raster graphics to display text in a font that cannot be trusted to be available on most computers. Criticism[edit] Alternatives[edit] Trivia[edit]
