Cinemetrics Mesaures Colour in Films
Recent graphic design graduate from the Royal Academy of Art, the Hague, Frederic Brodbeck’s Cinemetrics project measures the colours used in films, creating unique portraits of cinematic masterpieces based on hue.
The computer application breaks down films into basic components such as visual footage and audio tracks, then processes this data and displays it as a radial diagram. Brodbeck’s aim to show films as a whole rather than one frame at a time opens doors to new methods of information gathering, data visualisation and colour usage.
