If you love data, pantone, and cinematography, then you will love this color analysis by Roxy Radulescu. The LA-based graphic designer originally from Illinois was inspired to look into cinematographic color choice when she was watching Skyfall, directed by Sam Mendes. She selected a still and used a color generator in Photoshop to get the basic swatch ranges, then she composed the general color palette of the most prominent colors in the still. She has continued to use this process on some of the most popular films in cinema history, choosing a theme each week.

With so many amazing films out there, Radulescu will not be running out of content anytime soon to keep this Tumblr going strong! [Read more...]

From symbolic dramas, to action-packed blockbusters, to cult classics, Eylar has a way of making his chosen scenes recognizable, despite the minimal expression provided in the plastic faces. Aside from movie scenes he has an awesome series of crime scene possibilities from the board game Clue, using Legos of course. [Read more...]
If you loved Bob Egan’s vintage album detective work, then you’ll love the blog of Christopher Moloney. Much like Egan does for album covers, Moloney tracks down the actual locations of famous movie scenes. A writer for many networks including CNN, CBS, and A&E, Moloney’s scene searching hobby started in June.
