RE: Week 2: Dissecting a Trailer: The Parts of the Film That Make the Cut
This visualization did a pretty good job on showing how the trailer scene come from the movie. Separating the whole movie time into beginning, middle, end and not-in, and set different color to them is a really good way. That makes it easy for people to understand where do these trailer parts come from and how it’s order. It also use a thin line to connect all trailer part together throughout the trailer. What I think is good about this thin line is: it’s a thin light line, so it would not influence you from checking the trailer parts. But it does help us understand how the trailer scene follow the order of movie.

Another good part in this visualization is that it uses block segment to represent the continuous movie scene in the graph. So we can found in movie like Silver Linings Playbook and Argo, the trailers use a lot of small scenes from movie, comparing to movie like Armor. I believe this part could lead to further research and discussion about the trailers.

The graph puts all trailer scene not in the film in the bottom and out of the tendency line. The reason for doing that is maybe the graph want to have a clear view on how trailer scene follow the order of the movie, and adding not-in-film scene may effect that part.
