BHM Inspiration - Belly (1998) by Hype WIlliams: Taral Hicks Blue

As time goes on opinion and attitudes change about Belly, Hype Williams 1998 feature film which was panned upon its release in theaters. Even if you didn’t like the film the one thing that everyone I knew agreed upon was the blue palette that Hype Williams employed for the scenes that he shot with actress, Taral Hicks. The hues, lighting, camera positions, and Hicks combined to create a stunning visual that continues to evoke interest from film and culture fans.
