An Eye on Film

Saturday 22nd March, 2014

Birmingham Midland Institute - Dickens Room | 11:30

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.
