When most people think of director Stanley Kubrick (The Shining, Full Metal Jacket), if indeed they think of him at all, they probably visualize one of his perfectly composed shots without giving much conscious thought to the colors inside them. But Marc Anthony Figueras has a new short video out that takes a chromatic view of the master’s work: Kubrick In Color.
Kubrick In Color arranges the filmmaker’s color palette from primary reds, blues, and yellows, to greens, oranges, purples, pinks, and even blacks and whites. And the whole thing is thrillingly cut to “The Blue Danube Waltz,” one of the classical pieces made so iconic in the 20th century by its use in Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Even if you’re not that interested in film, Kubrick In Color is worth watching below for its value in the world of visual design and art, so if you’ve got four minutes to spare, check it out. And for more from Figueras, head over to his account on Vimeo right here.
