Colouring Classic Films

Post  Polidano on Wed Mar 06, 2019 3:33 pm

Do you think it is alright to "colorize" classic films?  Why or why not?  To take it one step further....is it alright to make any changes to films once it has been theatrically released? Explain your position.

i dont think it is right to colorize classic films as it strips away the original magic and style of the film. black and white was at one point commonplace and thus directors were prepared to deal with this. the lighting and posing was done deliberately by the crew to create depth and when this film is colorized all these elements are stripped away. the movie becomes flatter and almost has the appearance of a tv movie. while everything else remains the same the placement of colour where it was not intended causes the film to lose the magic the director intended it to have. i dont believe it's right to make changes to a film after its release as it tampers with the director's vision. i am a firm believer that a director should have be able to make a film exactly how they intended it and to me simply colorizing a film can destroy the work the director and crew put so much effort in to create.

It is "OK" to colourize classic films because there are some people who love watching colourized movies. It is better for the editors of the film to make a colourized version, to those who love colours. In my opinion, I would prefer black and white because it is more clear and it is clean; when we watched the colourized film in the class- the colourized version was blurred and I didn't like it as much as I loved black and white. Its not right to make any changes to films once it has been theatrically released because once people watch the film in theatres they see things for the first time and they enjoy the film, but when they decide to watch it the second time (if made any changes after being released) they might not like it as they watched it the first time. Therefore, it's not "ok" to re-release the film with any new changes. bounce bounce bounce

Colorized Films

Post  paulasojor on Wed Mar 20, 2019 7:44 pm

Although I do not particularly enjoy black and white movies, I am completely opposed to the idea of colourizing films. I believe directors of these movies, specifically planned and produced movies with the intention of making up for the loss of colour. For example, Charlie Kane was often drowned out by shadow in comparison to Susan who often appeared brightly lit and dressed in white.The director of 'citizen kane', intentionally lit the scene to represent the difference in personalities. If black and white films were to be coloured, I believe they would lose their originality and authenticity.

Colorization of films

Post  gabriella velante Yesterday at 5:11 pm

I personally think that the colorization of films should not be done. I believe that it takes away the true art and effect that a film gives off. Originally, films were seen without color. But, once you add these new elements such as colorization, it takes the captivity and magic away from a historical moment. Once watching a few black and white movies in class, I don't think that I would enjoy watching the same ones in color. Although one may say that color brings much brightness and allows viewers to be more interested in a film, I think that a black and white film shows contrast and simplicity much greater. A director can use shadows to their advantage during black and white films, which allows viewers to think about the film technique choices and meanings behind the elements used much deeper. Overall I think that both color films and black and white films are amazing, although I think that using colorization on a film takes the traditional film aspects away from the original objective.

No, I don’t think it’s alright to colorize classic films because when you do that, you’re practically just losing everything about it, although the storyline and characters don’t change it’s really in your mind that that while watching it colorized you’re more thinking of it in the original way because that’s how you know it’s supposed to be. Once films have been released they should keep it exactly the way that they had it because the directors, filmmakers, actors and actresses have put so much time and effort into making a movie for the audiences pleasures and laughter, not to have it changed and reversed all of a sudden
