On my last post on film featuring the Video “Notes on a Scene” with Gretta Gerwig and her crew of actors she talked about ways story telling can be enhanced through different visual tools. One of these was her use of color (or colour). The colors that the characters dress in subconsciously (or consciously) can tell us who these characters are, what we should know about them, and/or even what we should associate them with as a means of helping tell the story (though it is not limited to characters) without the filmmaker directly telling us. Please enjoy this video that talks more into depth about the power of color in film.
Also, feel free to comment below with a some of your favorite films that really make use of color!
