- a brief history of the use of colors in films.
- Color symbolism in the movies today
- Color Symbolism for Transitional aspects
- Color Symbolism for expressions
- Color symbolism to give a clue
- Color symbolism to transport viewers to another time and place

In conclusion
It is evident that film directors put a lot of effort and thought in using colors symbolism in their movies in a manner that helps them connect with the audiences. So, the next time you watch a movie, try and note what color symbolism is used therein.

Romantic kind of movie offers a wide range of productions between Romantic comedy and full drama. Modern films are characterized by an image processing less luminous than comedy but not as dark than drama. Arguably it emerges a visual constant resulting of soft images slightly colorful with a bit of sun to keep hope. It’s necessary to get on screen the intensity of feelings without digging volumes by strong contrasts. Nexyad was inspired by films such as « Her » or « Twilight » to propose here balanced images with pastel colors but relatively deep as well.

Interesting paper about psychology & color

How Emotions Influence Color Preference

by CHAN JEAN LEE, EDUARDO B. ANDRADE, STEPHEN PALMER

HAAS School of Business
University of California Berkeley

« This paper examines how an individual’s emotional state influences his or her preferences for colors that have either congruent or incongruent emotional tones. Based on the emotion literature, three alternative hypotheses are contrasted: emotion-judgment congruence, emotion-target congruence, and emotion-target incongruence. Evidence of emotion-target congruence is observed—Experiments 1 and 2. This effect, however, is moderated by emotion specificity and the type of colored object. Attitudinal commitment is proposed as the key underlying mechanism. When the negative emotional reaction reflects a committed (notcommitted) attitude toward the situation, the emotion-target congruence (incongruence) effect occurs—Experiment 3. Similarly, emotion-target congruence takes place (disappears) when the colored object signals (does not signal) people’s attitudes and tastes—Experiment 4. The paper concludes with a discussion on how the proposed mechanism can explain part of the
inconsistencies previously observed in the emotion and aesthetics literature.
