The DNA of Film

InceptionDNA

I came across this very cool Movie Bar Code art on Twitter, the above image is the movie Inception, with a twist.

Unfortunately there is no indication who the artist is but what they do it take all the frames of a particular movie and compress them into one big print that acts as a kind of film DNA.

What I found most interesting was comparing the various films to see which ones had the most color, there’s a lot of black and brown in movies apparently. Not surprisingly Bambi was one of the most colorful while The Matrix is notable for how you can pick out the scenes where they are in the system (The Wachowski brothers used a green filter on scenes where the characters are in the artificial world of The Matrix).

This particular Tumblr blog was only started in February so keep checking back to see which films they feature next.
