color and mood

According to Ellen – Part One

How do you use color to make a statement in your work?


I am a lover of all color and the juxtaposition of no color.  I love to live with color, dream in color and create in color, however in the medium that I work in color creates a statement that has to reflect the text and the story.

Color can create a mood without words, so when I am translating the text, I must choose the exact shade to evoke that emotion.

In real life (meaning beyond the movie set) color says the same about the person.  Picture someone walking into a room in a red dress, then picture one in a pink shirt, or someone wearing grey or green or lots of colors together…color is everything, and it sets the tone for one’s life.
