‘Movies In Color’ Breaks Down the Color Palette Used in Movies
Created at the end of last February by graphic designer Roxy Radulescu after watching Skyfall, the tumblr showcases so far 45 movies, each one falling under a weekly theme. Here is what Roxy says about selecting frames and defining their color palette:
“I search for stills that are compositionally interesting as well as rich in color. I use the help of a color generator to get a very basic range of swatches. Then I piece together the general palette from that and other colors I think are prominent or worth including from the still. It’s all done in Photoshop to keep layout and swatch sizes consistent and to facilitate color sampling from the image.”
Below is a selection from each week’s themes in chronological order of appearance; make sure to go on movies in color to see the full selection:
