Twitter Account Dedicated to Color Palettes of Great Movies


This is actually really cool. There's a Twitter account called 'Cinema Palettes' that is dedicated to sharing the color palettes from great movies. It's an excellent resource for all artists, not just photographers and videographers. Tone, color, and even saturation can greatly influence the mood or even meaning of a scene/movie.

The brightly colored, cookie-cutter, homes of 'Edward Scissorhands' not only represent the phony, cheery, attitude their residents are attempting to portray, they are a stark contrast to lonely, dark, Edward up on the hill.
Wes Anderson's films are admired by fans the world over. He is well-known for his use of color. His color palettes are so beloved people have been using them for inspiration for the homes and events in their personal lives (weddings, birthday parties, living rooms). In his movies they evoke everything from atmosphere to emotion, and character development to simply drawing the eye to a focal point.
Let's not forget at the end of the day REALLY great directors are incredible visual artists that shape and mold a storytelling vision. They know their stuff. Especially when it comes to composition and color theory. This Twitter feed is really great and you could probably spend a lot of time perusing their posts. I recommend that you do. You can check it out HERE.
