Color Theory in Film — Color Psychology for Directors: Ep5



More Color Theory Examples & FREE Worksheet 👉

Have you ever wondered about Color theory in Film?

You film color palette matters to the audience. It’s not only aesthetic, it also affects storytelling. This video takes you through director’s choices when it comes to colorization in their film works and how those colors get different emotional responses from the audience.

We break down color in TV, movie, and use film theory to extract meaning from specific choices. There are three components of color.

They are:

Hue – which is the color.

Saturation – the intensity of the color

Brightness – the brightness of the color

With just hue, saturation, and brightness (HSB for short) you can create a complex color scheme rather simply, and go from being just another director to a being a true visual artist.

By utilizing hue, saturation, and brightness you can precisely identify the right color create certain feelings in your audience.

Bright images often seem lively and exciting. Darker images often seem dramatic. And on it goes…

But rules were made to be broken.

What are some of your favorite moments of color in media and entertainment?

    Why did you put color bands to fill the left and right side of the Wes Anderson clips? He deliberately used these different aspect ratios. Do not worry, the viewer can handle black bands.

    there is no scientific backing to the idea that colors intrinsically illicit emotion, the emotions that are caused are brought about through cultures and societies associating certain ideas to colors. You can use those associations or even subvert them but this isn't a science thing its a sociology thing.

    No, not all superheroes stuff are dark there's dark done right and wrong. Dc so far hasn't pulled the black tones. Marvel/Netflix that's dark in my opinion it works because while DC's movies are trying to be dark those marvel tv shows are street level dark (except iron fist) daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage they all have amazing moods to them.
