"Visualizing Vertov" - a new experimental project by Lev Manovich with 33 visualizations is focusing on two famous movies, The Eleventh Year (1928) and Man with a Movie Camera (1929) by Vertov.
Image Above: All shots with close-ups of faces from The Eleventh Year (Dziga Vertov, 1928). The shots are arranged in the order of their apperance in the film, left to right, top to bottom. See the details of the analysis on Software Studies.
I am always amazed with the idea of analyzing all the data of a movie (shots, characters, images, editing, script, locations, etc.) With the advance of CPU technology and open coding culture, we started to see powerful analysis on movies, data visualizations focusing on large data sets of moving imagery. Soon enough we may see the analysis and visualization of all the oscar winning movies, all movies from hollywood, and so.
If you are interested in visualization about movies, tv shows you should check these two projects as well: Pie, comparison of films trough colour by Alan Woo and Lostalgic, visualiziton of some properties and patterns out of the entire lost script by Santiago Ortiz.
