Title:Cinepath: A visualized interface for cinematic film locations
Author(s):Yang, Lilan

Abstract:

NOTE: This is an interactive visualization.


I have always been fascinated by films and where they take place with the eagerness to pinpoints these places on Google maps and visit during travels. Thus here comes Cinepath, a visualized interface for cinematic film locations. This is a personal voyage of cinema in terms of interdisciplinary studies with cinema and data visualization. The dataset was self-collected with available sources online such as IMDb yet its limitation was minimized by analyzing the film frame by frame and using street views. Then with these coordinates, I use webpages as the medium, Google Maps as the canvas, and Google Maps API as a drawing tool to create the animated paths that show where the director chooses to shoot the film. Right now it is still a prototype since two films have been visualized: Paris, Texas (1984) by Wim Wender and Frances Ha (2013) by Noah Baumbach. In the future, the plan for this project is to increase the number of films to better analyze director patterns throughout their careers.
