Technicolor is a registered trademark for a series of color film processes launched by the Technicolor Motion Picture Corporation , now subsidiary of Thomson. This company was founded by Herbert Theodor Kalmus in 1915.
It is the second of the principal color film processes since it follows the British process Kinemacolor; it was largely used with Hollywood of 1922 with 1952. In France, the realizer Leonce Perret is the first to use the Technicolor technique in his films starting from 1927.
The Technicolor process became famous for its made hyper-realistic and was usually used for the musical comedies (Chantons under the rain, the Magician of OZ,…) or for cartoon films (White snow and the seven dwarves, Fantasia,…).
The Technicolor process uses with the catch of sight of the black and white films (the charger contains 3 films, each one receiving one of the three primary colors, whose separation is ensured by filters placed behind the objective).
Technicolor has just bought a small box of film mixing, Modulations .
Technicolor is not any more used since the Seventies and was replaces by the Eastmancolor.
