What makes your favourite movie?

Memorable scenes?

Fantastic locations?

All of the above, of course!

The result

A New Hope: Framed Art Print - LARGE
A New Hope: Framed Art Print - LARGE

 (frame not supplied, unless specified)

We will create art prints capturing all of these attributes. Making a high quality talking point showing how your favourite movie characters interact within each scene and location. An eye-catching centre-piece for any movie buff! 

Relive the excitement of the movie through the intricate detail of the prints

Back our project and choose your favourite film from the list below and we will create a limited edition print showing all the details illustrated in the video

Here are some close-ups of the Star Wars print shown in the video above

Soundtrack

A graphical output of the entire soundtrack of the movie

The data is gathered with a combination of image analysis, algorithms for characters and scenes which we have already written, and good old-fashioned artistic license!   Each image takes hours of work to complete before it is checked and readied for print

You can scan through the entire film to see how all the elements combine

For this kickstarter project we will produce a minimum of 10 different Movie Maps as shown in the updated list below

If you wish to create a Movie Map which is not listed below, please contact us. It may not appear as part the Kickstarter Project, but as long as we can get the movie on DVD/Blu-Ray, we can produce a print

Each map will show the interaction of main characters, label the scenes/chapters (vertical) and major locations (horizontal) and have a palette map of compressed frames from the film at the top to help show the timeline, with the soundtrack volume added to the bottom. 

All prints will be on high quality semi-gloss premium paper, presented in the original WIDSESCREEN aspect ratio of the film. They will have a minimum of 5mm white bleed (margin) around all edges to enable you to mount them more easily

Any contributions will help us buy some additional hardware and software so that we can create these images with greater accuracy and quality. 

We hope to create a library of images depicting all the action in a movie, in time being able to create any Movie Map upon request

Risks and challenges

We have written the application to analyse and present the data, but final images may change due to some improvements in accuracy and presentation
This includes creation of the image and the palette at the top and the soundtrack at the bottom
We have sourced a service (in the UK) to print the images on high quality paper and ship them out

Whilst we take every care to ensure the data used for these visualisations is absolutely correct, please remember that there is an element of artistic license applied.
The exact layout of the Movie Map and Palette prints may differ slightly from those shown above, as we are constantly updating our algorithms to achieve the most pleasing visual affect
