To celebrate the work of the professionals and inspire a new generation of artists and filmmakers, we’ve partnered with HP to bring you a series of articles showcasing the extraordinary imagery being created for today’s films, broadcast TV and commercials.

In the third part of the series, HP take a look at three major films that wouldn’t have had the same impact without the very specific application of colour and visual creativity: The Life of PiOblivion, and Pacific Rim.

Read the full article to find out how the directors, colourists and cinematographers used colour, saturation and lighting to enhance the world of each film.
