Capturing Colour: Film, Invention and Wonder

I visited the Brighton Museum & Art Gallery in th Royal Pavilion Gardens today having been tipped off by the Brighton Flickr group that there was an exhibition named Capturing Colour: Film, Invention and Wonder.

Some may already know that the moving film began in Brighton, England and the exhibition traces it from original black and white, through a system using three black and white films stained in red, blue and green and combined to create colour images and then on to colour film and video.

There is a fantastic old movie camera on display as well as very informative video exhibits including one showing the paterns created by a Cromatrope. Also an excerpt of The Open Road, a 1926 colour film by Claude Friese-Greene.

The exhibition is upstairs at Brighton Museum & Art Gallery, 4/5 Pavilion Buildings, Brighton, BN1 1EE and run from 4th December 2010 to 20th March 2011. Admission is free.
