Vizuálna kompozícia farieb ako estetická kvalita filmu

Jozef Mergeš


The paper deals with the visual composition of color and applying it to the art of cinema, highlighting the importance of color as an element in the mise en scène of a cinematographic work. Despite the fact that we live in a world composed of colors and perceive them in an active way, color as an aesthetic means of the film is not often taken as object of interest. It is mainly caused by secondary nature of colors perception of the cinematographic work at the expense of the picture as a whole. Color generally acts in the film realistically, and therefore rarely comes to the fore. A closer look at its function in mise en scène and narratives proves that the motivation of choosing colors in the film is clearly identified as conditional. This paper attempts to identify and summarize the typology of the above outlined motivations.
