Frederic Brodbeck developed Cinemetrics for his bachelor graduation project at the Royal Academy of Arts. He explains:

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.

I find this totally fascinating. It’s a completely fresh way of examining a film from a technical standpoint, and a way of encapsulating the overall esthetic: fast or slow, colorful or gloomy, and so on. Cool.

See Brodbeck’s site, Cinemetrics, for more, including some intriguing movie posters developed from the process.
