Between Cinemetrics and Cartography

On my way as a graphic designer to the taste I discovered of working with data I found two fields that caught my attention: Cinemetry and Cartography. Both have a visual result translated from the use and treatment of their data, they have a social purpose always connected with a separate commercial opportunity.

CINEMETRICS is Frederic Brodbeck’s graduation project at the Royal Academy of Arts in Den Haag:

«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.»
