Roxy Radulescu’s Breakdown Of Color In Film Stills

Roxy Radulescu lives and works in Los Angeles, CA. In addition to her many graphic design projects she is currently working on a series entitled Movies In Color in which she sheds light on the color composition found within single frames of famous films. Not only does deconstructing frames from a film like 2001: A Space Odyssey help to reveal a gorgeous color spectrum, it also highlights the masterful Cinematographer responsible for framing and shooting the picture. In her own words it is ” …a pursuit that showcases the relationship between color, cinematography, set design, and production design. Overall, it is a study of color in films, but has other uses and applications. One of the goals is to give artists color palettes they can use in paintings, films, videos, graphic design, and other pursuits. I search for stills that are compositionally interesting as well as rich in color. I use the help of a color generator to get a very basic range of swatches. Then I piece together the general palette from that and other colors I think are prominent or worth including from the still.”
