Original Assignment

Rainbow Showcase created by Ien
Colors are an important tool that any good cinemotogrpaher will utilize to the fullest. Using clips from your favorite tv show or movie, try to showcase prominent examples of the colors of the rainbow (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet/purple). Can you give a good reasoning behind your choices?
