An Enlightening Look at the History and Science of Colour Film

By Michael Hession on at

If you're a history buff, or a cinema buff, or a science buff—any kind of buff, really—you will love this comprehensive tour of the evolution of colour film and photography.

FilmmakerIQ hosts this informative account of how we got from black-and-white to the rich naturalistic colours of today. Not surprisingly, it wasn't one sudden breakthrough. It took many individuals experimenting with many different methods to come as far as we have.

From the very first colour still photograph, to hand-tinting, to technicolour and beyond, this video covers it all. It's well worth your time. [Vimeo via ISO1200]
