“[A good artist is] one with imagination and the ability to tell a good story. How well a man draws cuts no ice with me, if what he’s trying to express comes out vague and choppy.” ‐ Jack Kirby
(Sherman cited in Morrow (ED.) 2004, (vol.1) p. 181).

Week 9 Clips Recap

Hey all,
A selection of the clips we watched last week in class, relating to colour and it's use. Check the notes on L@GU for not only the basic theories at play (complimentary colours, colour values, 'warm' and 'cool' colours) but also the possible reasons as to why certain colours/combinations are used in scenes. These are used in conjunction with the visual language of composing shots. Enjoy :D

All-Star Superman (Warner Animation): Opening Scene:

All Star Superman Pt.1 by mrcobain215vidz2

"What's Opera, Doc?" (Warner Bros.)

Dumbo (Disney) : "Look out for Mr Stork":

Dumbo (Disney) "Pink Elephants on Parade":

Kung Fu Panda (Dreamworks) Intro:

And the couple of live action examples:

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (intro):

The Matrix: "Trinity rooftop chase":
(Notes a lot of the shots that we went over in "Genre" lecture are used in this sequence.)

See you all after the break. Hopefully, you're using the week off to progress a bit more in your final assessments. Any questions, email me :)
