Games you could play with these kind of data imagesIt’s worth noting that you could do all of this in an English classroom and get at some really serious analysis. You could even reverse things and have students create the color graph for a novel. What would those colors be in the movie? Explain your choices. Give someone the image.

How do the colors compare? Why do you think that’s the case? You could break down three movies from the same director and look for matches or just do it randomly. Just doing this kind of analyzation and mapping to the actual stills would be a pretty intense assignment if you talked about whether the average color was representative of the scene/plot. Do dark colors always match It would also be wild to produce your own movie with […]
