The Color of Pixar Reviews

    Just under 4 stars - visually stunning but lacking something. Review coming soon once i've had a think.

    While this is an intriguing concept, collecting static scenes from Pixar movies and arranging them across the color spectrum, the execution isn't at all what I would have hoped or wanted. Each image is framed by what is supposed to be its dominant (I guess?) color, yet in some cases it's clearly a stretch. The images are delivered entirely without commentary, just a citation for the movie title and year, so this feels like a lost opportunity to examine how the use of color impacts the tone, emot

    While this is an intriguing concept, collecting static scenes from Pixar movies and arranging them across the color spectrum, the execution isn't at all what I would have hoped or wanted. Each image is framed by what is supposed to be its dominant (I guess?) color, yet in some cases it's clearly a stretch. The images are delivered entirely without commentary, just a citation for the movie title and year, so this feels like a lost opportunity to examine how the use of color impacts the tone, emotion and delivery of the scene. I was expecting to read more about how the use of color for characters, environments and situations supplemented or reinforced the dynamics of the scene, but this was a total bust. Basically, if you want to look through a scenebook, this is the one for you. If you're looking for actual information about Pixar animation and technique, skip it; this is not the book you seek.
