"Cinemetrics" is a movie visualization project from designer Frederic Brodbeck. Brodbeck explains:
“I wanted to use the movie itself as a source of data, to see what sort of information can be extracted from it, to find ways of visualizing it and to create the necessary tools to do this. since motion pictures are a time-based medium, they can only be seen one image at a time– only as a fraction, never as a whole. [‘cinemetrics’ involves] extracting and analyzing information–such as the editing structure, use of colors, speech or motion– and transforming them into graphic representations, so that movies can be seen as a whole and easily be interpreted or compared […] both in print and digital media.”
