Color in Storytelling - A Video Essay

Source: YouTube

This is seriously one beautiful, visually stunning video essay. Lewis Bond edited this exceptional video essay titled Color in Storytelling. It dives deep into the various uses of color in cinema. It may run long for some people, but for all those film fanatics/movie buffs out there, this is right up your alley.  I really love how well-researched this intensive look at color in film is.  It examines its history and the first uses of color in cinema, spanning from the early 1900s to modern techniques with filmmakers like The Wachowski Brothers and Ang Lee and George Lucas. The amount of time this took is so involved and I love the explanation mixed in with the examples of real footage. Take a look and enjoy!
