"Examining the Color Palette of Film: The Impact of Color and Its Use by Cinematographers" by Jacqueline Frost
The color palette of a film is a subtle way to visually enhance the emotional aspects of a film and guide the viewer to respond to it on a visceral level. Understanding the basic components of color, warm colors and cool colors, as well as how the audience responds to these colors is essential. Cool colors are violets, blues and greens.

Sure, the soundtrack's pretty rough, and none of the effects are in place, but there it is: you've made a movie. Well, not quite yet. Go ahead, take a day to get carried away in the excitement of seeing your story play out onscreen from beginning to end, to just let that feeling of, "it works," wash over you. Enjoy it. But then come back to the editing room ready to keep working.
