2021 Theme: Midnight in Technicolor

The Buffys 2021 theme is based on the traditional Technicolor movement in film, primarily around the 1950’s. Technicolor films are known for their bright, bold and saturated colours. Technicolor is a series of processes used to first produce colour in motion pictures. The famously recognized three-strip Technicolor changed the film scene. Each of the three negatives were responsible for either red, blue or green. Today, Technicolor is more known for the end result of the colouring than the process itself.

Classic examples of Technicolor movies from the Golden Age of Hollywood are The Wizard of Oz (1939), Gone With the Wind (1939), Snow White and the Seven Dwarves (1937), and Blue Lagoon (1949).
