The 38th International Conference And Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques

Storytelling With Color

Monday, 8 August 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm | West Building, Rooms 109/110

Color is mysterious, emotional, enigmatic. Opinions are strong about what they mean, or do not mean. Theses have been written about the emotional significance of color in film, psychology, and clothing. This course discusses storytelling choices in fine art, illustration, and films (animated and live action), and how color selection supports the story. Topics include color rules, when and how to break them, and the differences between the analog and digital palettes. The course includes plenty of visuals and is appropriate for everyone interested in color.
