This was an eye opener for me, I tend to think more about movement and camera placement rather than colour. I never coloured the original comic, even though when I drew it I knew it was all about the misleading warmth and danger of the sunset, I drew it imagining red. I also wanted to create an alien feel to the world, I thought about having the sea and sand bright unnatural colours. I really wanted a purple sea, I even experimented with making the underwater neon, I researched a lot of coral reefs and the colours in them where amazing... and kind of alien!
I tried colour comping a few variations above, I found it really helpful as I realised that a lot of what I thought didn't feel right when I tried it in the comps, some of the comps began to feel like I was lying about what I was trying to communicate... I'm not sure how else to describe it, it was like I was purposely trying to make a look that I new was superficial. Eventually these calmed down a lot colour wise, I then developed them further into a small colour script as a guide for the film.
