"What is a Colorist?" Understanding Color. This Pixar Supercut Will Remind You Just How Important Color is in Storytelling. One oft overlooked aspect of filmmaking, whether it happens during production or post, is color.
Sure, you grade your film to give it the look and feel you want, but how well are you utilizing color to tell your stories? Maybe we should refer to the storytelling masters at Pixar to find out how they put it to work in their narratives. Makes you appreciate colorists more, doesn't it? (You, too, DPs.) This super cut, edited by Rishi Kaneria, does a great job of showing us how well Pixar grasps the ways color affects our emotions, and because it affects our emotions, it makes it a great storytelling tool. However, it's probably not wise to go full-bore and saturate every scene in loud colors. What are some of your favorite examples of the use in color in films? Color Reel - The House On Pine Street. Interactive iPad App 'Interaction of Color' Brings Josef Albers' Famous Color Theories to Life. One of my absolute favorite aspects of aesthetic theory is color -- their "meanings", their composition and pairing, and how their aesthetic energy effects a human brain.
Josef Albers basically rewrote the book on color theory with his 1963 Interaction of Color, and now Yale University Press has made his invaluable teachings available in an iPad app. Full of Albers' texts, color studies, as well as 125 color plates, videos, interviews, and studies for users to complete, this free interactive app offers an engaging way to learn Albers essential color theories not only for filmmakers, but all creatives whose understanding of color is integral to their work. The free version of the Interaction of Color iPad app allows you to access Chapter 10 of Albers' book, as well as text, video commentary, two interactive plates, and the palette tool. Check out the videos below to get an idea of what you can do with the app. First up is the promo/demo: Here's a walk-thru of the Interaction of Color app: Colorist & Grading Training by Colourists.
