In the early days, filmmakers used laborious methods to apply colour to film, with stencilling, or hand colouring each frame! The Kinemacolor process was revolutionary, using red and green filters on alternating frames to simulate various shades of colours. However, it still failed to represent the full spectrum of colour. Then came the glorious tri-colour technicolour making full colour representation possible. The RGB colour model aligns with a solid theory of human’s perception of colours. Trichromacy is the possessing of three independent channels for conveying colour information, derived from the three different types of cone cells in the eye.
