Color theory might sound like nothing more than a cinematic buzzword you last heard in your 300-level fine arts course at university.

As of this writing, the account has 256 screenshots and accompanying color palettes displayed; everything from the 1957 Aubrey Hepburn film, Funny Face, to Ridley Scott s 2015 space adventure, The Martian.
