  1. Automatic Cinema aims at an artistic audience. The software can be used for exhibitions or installations, where a variety of media are served on various screens and channels – syncronized or not. Since all media assets are stored in a database, Automatic Cinema is also useful for documentarists and researchers with a structural approach to their material. And last but not least, Automatic Cinema is open source and can be developed by anybody. Instead of cutting a bunch of videoclips the hard way, Automatic Cinema generates countless versions based upon predefined styles. Probably, you'll end up seeing a movie you've never been thinking of — serendipity in it's best way.

  2. All of the English dialogue in "Star Wars", split into words, and sorted alphabetically.

    Fun facts:
    The word "lightsaber" only appears once in this film.
    There are 43m5s of spoken English, 81m39s of other.
    The most common word is "the", of course, said 368 times.
    The word with most screen time is "you", at 52.56 seconds.
    There are 1695 different words, and 11684 total words.
    The longest words are "responsibility," "malfunctioning", "worshipfulness", and "identification", all 14 letters.

    I labeled the words manually (!) using some software I wrote specifically for the purpose.

  4. "A hilarious montage of movies, both classic and obscure, creates a rapid-fire countdown."
    (William Sloan, "Outstanding Short Films from International Festivals", Department of Film and Media, Museum of Modern Art New York)

    "Exciting found footage filmed made up of 266 (classic) film fragments. Counting down from 266. Schreiner sought and found fragments from film classics and obscure reels of film to complete his task. With a great feeling for building up tension and tight editing, he holds on to the viewer's gaze."
    (catalogue IFFR Rotterdam, 2006)

    "The numbers from 266 to 1, all glimpsed in brief shots from hundreds of films, are counted down in a hypnotically progressive edit, the ultimate in brutally linear narrative structures."
    (Paul Rooney, "Out of Darkness", Screenings of artists’ video in cinemas throughout the Midlands, Great Britain)

  6. New research reveals why people like to reread books, re-watch movies and generally repeat the same experiences over and over again. It’s not addictive or ritualistic behavior, but rather a conscious effort to probe deeper layers of significance in the revisited material, while also reflecting on one's own growth through the lens of the familiar book, movie or place.
