This Twitter Account Shares Color Palettes from Popular & Iconic Films


Want to recreate that “Martian” look? Or maybe it’s the “Moonrise Kingdon” look you’re going for, or your latest photo project needs the “Annie Hall” look. Whatever cinematic feel you’re trying to capture, Cinema Palettes can help you achieve it.

Cinema Palettes is a Twitter account that identifies and posts the color palettes of some of the most iconic and popular films in cinema—from Wes Anderson films like “The Royal Tenenbaums,” to Kubrick’s “The Shining,” to newer films like “Mad Max: Fury Road” and “Deadpool.”

A frame is selected from the film, and a color palette is built around it; a palette that could be applied to much of the movie, and helps to capture that film’s mood. And if you scroll long enough, you’ll find some films covered more than once using different scenes to set the palette.
