Angus, a friend and fellow film fan over at OMD sent me this video link earlier today. As it says, 'Cinemetrics is about measuring and visualizing movie data, in order to reveal the characteristics of films and to create a visual “fingerprint” for them. Information such as the editing structure, color, speech or motion are extracted, analyzed and transformed into graphic representations so that movies can be seen as a whole and easily interpreted or compared side by side'.
This is another interesting example of data visualisation cases we have showcased before (here's a top 50 from webdesignerdepot.com if you want to see more). Some are not just beautiful, but also very useful. In this case, I am not quite sure how useful the film visualisation tool is, but it's interesting none the less.
