Hi - I need some advice on use of colors for my movie.

For confused, scared, in 2 minds character, what color will be appropiate?
For in power, authority, sharp, calm character, what color will be appropiate?

Thanks,
Kavan

Any colors you see fit and justify as a motif.

Calm could be a light blur, but that can also be depressed.
For dualistic people, confused, perhaps multiple colors for them in all frames?

Try contrasting (but not complementary) colours - eg purple and orange

This sounds like blue - think official uniforms, think IBM blue - conservative but official.
