The first thing I noticed was the awesome color choices of the sky. They literally painted the sky every color of the rainbow, but even if it was a deep pink like you see below it didn't matter because it fit the mood so well and blended with the other colors in the scene.
You can tell they were very careful when selecting the colors to use on this film. They used a lot of subtle shades of blue in his lab, but also added some blinking yellow knobs to accent the room.
More yellow and blue mixes! I want tho eat that jello:
They also had some REALLY neat monochromatic color palettes. I love the shot with Flint's labcoat hanging on the electrical wire. Even though it's so tiny it stands out because it's the only bright white color against all the reds!
And the last thing I loved about the color choices was how well they helped accentuate the mood of the characters. In both these shots Flint and his dad are either bored out of their minds or down in the dumps. The shop had a lot of desaturated blues which really drove the mood of the story home.
There is really great stuff in this film! If you haven't seen this movie in a while, check it out! I have it too, so when I get back if anyone needs to borrow it let me know. :) I am sure as Ethan was pitching his story, you all could see it playing through those beautiful minds of yours! Don't be shy--post anything you find inspirational to the blog so we can piece something beautiful together!
