Movies In Color

Art Director, Designer, Creator & Curator

Movies in Color as a concept started when I was watching the movie Skyfall. I wanted to find out what colors made up certain stills and jumped into making a few color palettes based on the stills I could find. I then took it a step further by extending it to all films and starting a website.

The website has garnered press from online publications including Shutterstock, Jezebel, Laughing Squid, GetFilming, Abduzeedo and attention from Studio Ghibli.

Movies In Color currently has over 144,000 followers and continues to gain more daily.

 The logo mirrors the square swatch format of the palettes for some flair and memorability. The blog/website design is consciously bare to let the stills and palettes shine.

 With an amazing roster including  Princess Mononoke  and  Spirited Away,  I was honored to be a part of this promotional push. The kind people at  LOVE Magazine   featured the palettes  as a brief retrospective.

 Overall, the project became a study of color in films. The relationship between color, cinematography, set design & production design are apparent, but the blog has other uses and applications.

 One of the goals is to give artists color palettes they can use in their pursuits. The color palette extraction is done mostly manually in Photoshop.
