LA LA LAND: A Colourful Love Story
Did you know you could watch La La Land with no sound on yet still be able to understand the emotions and relations between the characters? And that it’s not because of Emma and Ryan’s fabulous acting skills but because of the costume and background colours?
Director Damien Chazelle pointedly selected colours to represent a variety of emotions and placed them very carefully on the characters and in the background to convey these emotions to the viewer. This infographic splits the movie up by scene to show the emotions of, and between, the characters through the placement of colours in each scene.
To pay homage to the vibrant musical Damien Chazelle created, enjoy the re-telling, or should I say re-playing, of Mia and Sebastian’s relationship through colour.
