1 + 2 = Blue: The Science of Color in Film

Sunday, March 13
12:30PM - 1:30PM

Austin Convention Center
Ballroom C
531 E 4th St


One filmmaker. One neuroscientist. One colourist. One brave soul strapped to biosensors, delivering live data visualizations of body and mind.

How does colour affect us, and how do filmmakers use colour to alter our perception, emotion, and cognition? Mill ECD Rama Allen, filmmaker, will speak about the influence of colour on his and others' work. Dr. Bevil Conway, neuroscientist and visual artist, will speak about the science of colour and how visual psychophysics impact artists and audiences. Mikey Rossiter, Mill Colourist, will share his perspective as an artist and provide insight into his process while one viewer's biometrics are captured and visualized on-stage.
