Colour grading

For my second assignment ‘Going Local’ I used colour grading and then used ‘Colour thief’ to show the dominant colours in a screen shot from the short film. I learned the main colours used in action film posters are orange and blue (or teal) as apparently they are the most visually pleasing.

I did some research on the actual meanings of colours from the colour wheel.

Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love.

Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.

Blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body. It slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect. Blue is strongly associated with tranquility and calmness. In heraldry, blue is used to symbolize piety and sincerity.
