Colour Theory for Film and Video

August 1, 6:00 PM

Charles Street Video

In CSV Workshop Space

Using examples from film and video, this workshop will explore the effects of colour on the viewer, and how treatments and manipulation are used in the industry. Beginning with an analysis of additive colour (light emitting sources), participants will be exposed to the psychological effects of individual colours, saturation, colour “casts” and colour grading, as well as some popular techniques used in the industry. The latter including triadic, complementary and analogous colour schemes, as well as colour/luminance manipulations such as bleach bypass.
