Graphic designer breaks films down by color

For those with an interest in film and composition (which probably describes most of our audience), this is the coolest thing you'll see all day. Roxy Radulescu, a graphic artist from Los Angeles, started Movies in Color, a blog that breaks iconic film stills down by color.

In addition to showcasing the most prominent and notable colors in each shot, the blog also shows the light and dark tones that make up most of the image. It's remarkable to see how some filmmakers and cinematographers work in almost monochromatic palettes, while others use certain colors sparingly to highlight different parts of the scene.

Right now there's 7 pages of content, plus an index by cinematographer. And since the blog's only been around since February, it's growing rapidly fast. Bookmark this one for later if you don't want to lose a whole afternoon to it.
