Effective use of colour can really make a film, and some will even bring particular colours to mind immediately. Just look at the orange and teal in Wes Anderson's upcoming Asteroid City, for example. These beautiful prints capture that and turn it into abstract art.

The Colours of Motion project explores the use of colour in movies through artistic prints in which each line represents the average colour of each frame in a particular frame. From Dirty Dancing to Dunkirk and Alice in Wonderland, films are turned into frame-by-frame bar codes that fans of colour theory can gawp over, and which look great on a wall.
