Survey the effect of color temperature and its psychological effects from the incessant heat of Spike Lee’s “Do the Right Thing” to the icy chill of the Coen Brothers’ “Fargo”. Then we look at the science of color temperature from it’s beginnings with Max Planck to how color temperature is measured with new alternative sources of lighting before looking at some practical and artistic uses of white balance. Then create your own short film where you will demonstrate the difference between Hot and Cold color temperatures.
Explore the mysterious and forgotten technique of Slit Scan for special effects and how Douglas Trumbull applied the photographic technique to Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece, “2001: A Space Odyssey”. Then we’ll do our best to recreate the effect using LEGO.
