Blue/Orange theory

Recently, I watched a couple of videos about the blue-orange theory and the use of color in films. Some Hollywood directors have been using a blue/orange color scheme in films to use color contrast to make things pop. This would be unremarkable except for the fact that the blue/orange color scheme has been used over and over again. No, it’s not a conspiracy, but it is interesting. The other video I watched was how filmmakers use color to tell a story. I learned a lot from this video and it really intrigued me. Check these two videos out:
