How does the way you watch a movie compare to somebody else? Do the director's decisions about editing, camera work, sound design, and staging influence what you see on the screen?
Using eye-tracking to investigate film viewing
In this interactive presentation the science of film spectatorship will be introduced and eye tracking - a technique for monitoring how viewers attend to a screen - will be used to expose how film subtly but powerfully shapes viewer cognition. Hosted by Tim Smith, cognitive psychologist at Birkbeck.
Part of Film Bug and Cafe Neuro, across Colmore Business District from 20-23 March.
