How could one not think of Mary Poppins when discussing color in film? For those who don't know, Mary Poppins is a magical nanny who arrives at the home of Jane and Michael Banks (by umbrella). She challenges the stiff English upbringing the children's father (Mr. Banks) provides, while teaching the children some valuable lessons about life. The main contrast in the way color is used throughout this film is during Mary's 'magical adventures' with the kids and her close friend Bert. The first 'still' shows when Mary, Bert, Jane, and Michael were whisked away to an outing in an animated countryside. The colors portrayed in the animated countryside are all of high energy compared to the 'reality' depicted in the movie where the energy is rather low making colors appear more dull. I think this is an effective way to use color between the magical world and reality because the animated world is more playful and fun which makes sense to me why the colors would be more vibrant.
