Spotmaps, based on Brendan Dawes' Cinema Redux, is an on-going project to map the colour narratives of different films.
Films are processed through a Python/OpenCV pipeline: each frame's colour is sampled, and a spot of average colour is produced from the combination of one second's frames.
Spots are laid out 60 per line to represent one minute of film time. The length of the image represents the number of minutes in the film.
A 24-colour Adobe swatch file in ASE format and a hex RGB colour file are available to download for each spotmap.
Unfortunately requests for spotmaps of specific films cannot be undertaken.
Please get in touch.
