From Color Wheel Pro: “Blue is the color of the sky and sea. It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven.” From the beginning I wanted the color blue to be significant in the story, and for Alex in particular. The idea came to my head because I figured she’d have done a lot of staring up at the sky and dreaming what else was out there in her day. And I wanted Jay to match her blue the more the two were connected, and I think it came across beautifully in the film overall and the most so in this scene. Of all of them is one of my favorites because you can see Alex falling in love with Jay by the end of it. All she wants to be seen and noticed, and here is the first man to do really do that. How can she say no? That was a big part of my discovery in making this film. While their actions were horrible and unfathomable, I felt I understood how and why Pat Krenwinkel, Leslie Van Houten and Susan Atkins ended up on Cielo and Waverly Drives the nights of August 8th and August 9th. And even though this story is fictional, I hope I’ve at least done somewhat justice to it.
And @katyakatt did a great job making full use of all of these themes. ☁️💙
