Color Saturation in Cinema by Steven Soderbergh


Filmmaker Steven Soderbergh is known as a chameleon of color, known for using striking, strong color casts in which frames are saturated with one hue. The best example is his film "Traffic (2002)", in which Soderbergh is seen favoring a cast of strong blues and blacks to match Michael Douglas' drug kingpin character. His films are to mimic reality, but through color, he heightens all senses to empathize with the feelings of his characters.
