Gunārs Civjans (1975-2016)

I have a tragic news to share. My son Gunārs Civjans whom many Cinemetrics users know as our sole software inventor and developer passed away after a sudden two-day illness in Jūrmala, Latvia, on April 23, 2016, at age 40. Gunārs loved working for Cinemetrics, helping some of you with their data submissions, and working on new generations of Cinemetrics tools. I find no words in me to express my love and admiration for Gunārs as a son and collaborator. Let me instead quote those who met Gunārs in May, 2015 during the cinemetrics conference he and I conducted at the University of Chicago:

 

BARRY SALT: I will miss him as a person, too, apart from all he did to help create Cinemetrics.

 ADELHEID HEFTBERGER: I have no words to describe how this news shocked me. I still remember when Yuri first mentioned Gunars many years ago. It must have been in connection with sailing. Over email conversation I had formed this image of the intelligent and gifted mastermind behind Cinemetrics, who constantly developed the site and added useful features. When I met him finally in Chicago, I was surprised to see that he was also one of the funniest people I had ever met. I admired his dry humor and I can only imagine what a wonderful and loving father and husband he has been too. I am so sorry to hear that Gunars is no more and I cannot understand how this is possible.

 LEA JACOBS: I am so sorry to hear about Gunars. It was so great meeting him at the Cinemetrics conference last year. I loved his amused and ironic way of discussing the site, his style was so different from most of the computer experts I have encountered. 

 CHRISTINA PETERSEN: Although a bit late, I wanted to send you an email to offer my condolences. I heard about Gunnar through the Chicago pipeline and although I only met him in person once, at the Cinemetrics Symposium last year, I was very sorry to hear of your loss. My favorite memory of Gunnar in fact is from the semester in Spring 2007 when he skyped you during International Cinema II and you answered him, telling the class: “This is Gunnar, he helped invent Cinemetrics,” which prompted the class to break into a spontaneous burst of applause. That is the way I hope to remember him, always connected to you despite geographic or other distances in work and play.

Good news from three quarters into March.

1) A query (+ a reply) about Cinemetrics metadata on our Discussion Board.

2) A letter from a film scholar of China:

I’m taking the liberty of writing to you to pay tribute to you for your outstanding achievements in Cinemetrics, and see if we could find some possibilities of cooperation in film studies.
Please allow me to do some self-introduction. My name is Yang Shizhen, a professor at School of Journalism and communication in Guangzhou University, China. My teaching and research is centred on Chinese film studies and the comparative study of Chinese and American film language, for undergraduate and postgraduate.I was very excited when I first visited your cinemetrics.lv last year’s September by chance. The quantitative methods, which you adopted in studying film’s style and form, do give me lots of inspiration. I agree with most of your research methods and conclusions.

As we know, China has become the No. 2 movie market of the world in 2015, but the Grand Theory still plays the leading role in Chinese film study. I am far more skeptical about its validity. My voice is so faint to be heard from here. Therefore, I am greatly encouraged by your research when I met with it. Anyway, I should express my gratitude to you for your work.

 Actually, in recent years, I have used some very similar methods in my teaching and research, with different tools. I used to guide students to extracts film form data with some editing softwares as a tool, such as After Effects/ Corel Video Studio/DaVinci Resolve and so on. In addition, I also used the data analysis of film form in the student’s practical training of editing and directing, and it has got some positive effect.

 Well, I have some thoughts and tentative proposals:

 1. I am leading some graduate students to found the database of Chinese film form, which I hope can be a part of the bigger database you established for researchers to compare film forms of different countries.

 2. As for CINEMETRICS and FACT, my students and I still have a lot to learn from you. I hope we could attend some relevant academic conferences held by your school, so that we have the opportunity to talk face to face.

 3. It’s a great honor for me to invite you to come to Guangzhou University and give lectures. Would you please accept the invitation? If possible, I will apply for all related expenses from Guangzhou University.

 4. I truly wish that we could have a variety of cooperation and academic exchanges in terms of Cinemetrics, like the translation of your work, the exchange of the graduate students and teachers, etc..

 Eager for your kind reply.

 Sincerely yours, Yang Shizhen

Professor, School of Journalism and Communication, Guangzhou University

Good news from early March.

On the scholarship front:

1) Our colleague Adelheid Heftberger of Austrian Film Museum published a book, take a look (in German) much of which is based on digital study of Vertov's editing, including measurements done on Cinemetrics.

2) David Hare from Australia contacted me with this message:

I recently submitted my PhD thesis on digital stereoscopy (D3D) for marking. One of the areas of interest was to do with the relationship between the uptake of the D3D screen technology and popular film techniques and visual styles. I used the Cinemetrics software to explore ideas about cutting rates, namely that D3D films in relation to conventional films have longer cuts in order to give the audience time to process the rendering/illusion of the third-dimension. The findings showed that this is not necessarily the case. Cinemetrics was such a great help. So, thank you and Gunars Civjans for sharing the program online.

3) Barry Salt, who always submits data using a frame-accutrate method adds those films to the database:

Good news from mid-Feb.

1) a few days ago I got this message from a collegue whom I do not know personally. It gives us some idea of the cross-disciplinary spread of what we all are doing on Cinemetrics:

Dear Dr. Tsivian, 

My article on digital representations of film analysis has been accepted for publication in France by Classiques Garnier in  the proceedings of the 2013 Conference of the International Association of Comparative Literature (ICLA). My main point consists in demonstrating that film analysis is no longer restricted to textual and verbal commentary, and has been taking many graphic forms since Bellour's work on Hitchcock's films. I am writing to request from you the authorization to reproduce and publish the Cinemetrics screengrab (posted on the homepage of your website) to illustrate my article. I thank you in advance for your reply. Should you need any further information, please don't hesitate to let me know.

 Best regards, 

Caroline Eades, Associate Professor of Film and Comparative Literature University of Maryland, College Park

2) A newcomer to Cinemetrics Julian Sittel is in the process of submitting Antonioni's body of films distiguishing between differrent shot scales and shots with the static vs. mobile framing. Looks like the beginning of a promising research. I bet fluctuations in shot scales across Antonioni's many films will lead to a meaningful conclusion. Keep measuring, Julian, if this is your plan, I look forward to more submissions

Good news from mid-June.

1) Old good news worth keeping in the news: anyone interested in reading a review of the recent Cinemetrics conference (University of Chicago, April 30-May 3) is welcome here.

2) Juho Ahava, a student from Finland studying Lev Kuleshov at the University of Iowa, sent us this interesting link to an essay about the editing of Mad Max: Fury Road. It confirms one of Tim Smith's hypothesis whose Attentional Theory of Cinematic Continuity includes the center-frame positioning into the list of factors responsible for "cut blindnes" -- our brain's ability to gloss over splices between shots.

Good news after a bad one:

this database was unavailable this weekend, sorry. This is what UofC Humanities Computing administrator says to explain this: 

It looks like the Cinemetrics server was blocked by the central MySQL cluster (which hosts the cinemetrics database) after the Cinemetrics software tried to reconnect too aggressively during a recent ITS data center outage.

It's on now! Back to work, folks!

Good news from the end of March.

I get increasingly excited each week I summerize new submissions to the Cinemetrics database. A large-scale research into the editing of trailers is apparently being under way, being conducted by  Alexandra Lockhart. We have a ton of her trailers by no, and perhaps more are coming. I do not have to tell (those into cinemetrics studies will see it without telling) how interesting trailers are as material for the study of editing. I look forward for more trailers and for a study that is bound to follow!

We fave many submissions this weel, made by old hands and newcomers, some from Taiwan (my guess, for they do used Cinemtrics to teach classes in Taiwan). Welcome aboard!

Good news; and a friendly warning for those who choose to use the Cinemetrics FACT tool (as distinct from the "Classic" tool). The warning is simple: please do not forget to select "simple mode" each time you use "simple mode" as your measurement option.

Let me explain. Each time you choose FACT, you have a choice. You can limit your mesurement to registering cuts between shots. This is called "simple mode." Or you can use our "advanced mode" option and categorize each shot before you register a cut. If you choose "advanced," you can either ascribe your own categories to the shot sequence you are going to measure or use our pre-set categories that mark 7 scot scales from LS (Long shot) to BCU (Big close up). When the first window opens, you have the system pre-set for marking exactly the shot scales, with BCU already sitting in the box:

And here is a catch some Cinemetrics user fail to avoid. If you not interested in shot scales and are measuring your film in "simple mode," what you must do is to select "simple mode" before you submit your film to the database. You must do it on the following window:

The thing is, when this window opens the default selection is on "Advanced." If your mesurement is simple, and you forget to change the selection to "Simple" the submitted data will all be marked as BCU, and colored blue. You can still use your cut mesurements for your analysis, but the graph will look a little strange (what? all Big close ups? why mark those if there is not alternative to BCUs).

Meanwhile, we have new films and newcomers (welcome aboard!)

Good  news from the end of October.

Articles, conference talks and various film-stat-style discussions accessible on our Measurement Theory section have been revised and rearranged for the users' convenience. Anyone interested in how to get a sense of where cinemetrics explorations are leading or can lead in the future are welcome to look here . As you will see, the newly arranged page start with a general intro section called "Taking Shot Lengths: Why and How" (by Bordwell, Salt, Tsivian) and ends with Mike Baxter compiled Bibliography (please send in your corrections and additions).

Good news from the end of August. After a good summer break in Latvia for me.

On the measurement theory front, the debate "Around Cutting James Cutting’s (et. al.) attentional model of cinema’s evolution" continues: a new study by Mike Baxter: Further comments on evolution in Hollywood film: the role of models has been added here. The essay is not "against Cutting," as Baxter explains in his recent email to me: "He and his team are doing interesting work, some of which (after Barry Salt's comments) they have acknowledged to be wrong - the four-act structure analysis. It is just that I think the claims in their 2010 paper are unsustainable on statistical grounds and it is interesting to explore why!"

Good news from mid-May.

In the last couple of weeks two articles, one by Mike Baxter and another by Barry Salt have been added to our Measurement Theory section under the rubric called "Around James Cutting’s (et. al.) attentional model of cinema’s evolution." In Baxter's and Salt's studies, Cutting's model and some of the ways of arriving at it are closely and critically inspected. Last week, Cutting's reply to Baxter and Salt's remarks entitled "More on the Evolution of Popular Film Editing" has been posted; download and take a look.

Good news from the first week of April.

A brief new study entitled "Salt on Baxter on Cutting" has been added to our "Measurement Theory" section. Both the first and the last words of this three-storey title are proper (if telling) nouns. As some of us recall, back in 2010 James Cutting and his collaborators published a study in Psychological Science "Attention and the Evolution of Hollywood Film" which generated a lively discussion on Cinemetrics. Barry Salt started it; James Cutting replied, Salt again, Cutting again and, after some three years or so, Mike Baxter revisited the above study to see how it looked from the point of view of statistics. Now, this week, Salt sent in his comments on Baxter's comments on Cutting's findings. All the six rounds of the 2010-2014 discussion are here. To make the series easier to follow, Gunars has re-arranges contributions found in the "Measurement Theory" section which now looks like this:

Other good news are about new films and newcomers (welcome aboard!). Barry Salt has re-submitted a number of frame-accurate data, and has named the first of them, Derailed, the champion of fast cutting, see:

Good news from the month of April.

After a period of consultations and deliberations (see the relevant topic on the Discussion Board) Gunars Civjans and I decided to launch our Database cleansing campaign. Some incomplete, incomprehensible or repeated submission will be as of now disappearing from the Cinemetrics database. This does not mean that these data have been erased forever. None of your data, including "tool-test" data will be eliminated. These data will just be invisible to the submitter or to the rest of us the Cinemetrics users. If you think this or that submission has vanished in error or in vain, just write a note about this to Gunars  who has the power of turning your data visible again. He may ask you to supply this or that missing info or instruct you to resubmit. In other words, all our cleansing actions are reversible and negotiable.

So far I have cleansed the whole of year 2014, From January 1 to present. Here are some examples of the types of data I have removed (to repeat: removed from sight, not eliminated).

1) test submissions marked as such:

2) obvious junk, for instance:

3) unidentified floating titles with essential metadata (like year, submitter) missing:

4) data debris resulting from on-line outages or other counting/submitting errors, for instance Peter Grzybek's recent submission:

5) films with forgotten metadata; for instance, a recent submission by our regular collaborator Cid Vasconcelos the film title and year are missing:

6) In cases of fully identical multiple submission just one has been left visible for Cinemetrics users:

 

In addition to this news, the following new films and newcomers (welcome aboard!) have been added to our database:

Star Trek - Voyager: Resolutions: 7 ASL 7.2 ; Star Trek - Voyager: The Chute: 7 ASL 7.9 ; Star Trek - Voyager: The Swarm: 7 ASL 5.6 ; Star Trek - Voyager: False Profits: 7 ASL 6.2 ; Star Trek - Voyager: Remember: 7 ASL 7.8 ; Star Trek - Voyager: Sacred Ground: 7 ASL 6.3 ; Star Trek - Voyager: Future's End, Part 1: 7 ASL 6.7 ; Star Trek - Voyager: Future's End, Part 2: 7 ASL 4.9 ; Star Trek - Voyager: Warlord: 7 ASL 7.9 ; Robert Koch, der Bekaempfer des Todes: 7 ASL 20.4 ; Star Trek - Voyager: Basics, Part 1: 7 ASL 5.4 ; Star Trek - Voyager: Basics, Part 2: 7 ASL 5.5 ; Star Trek - Voyager: Flashback: 7 ASL 8 ;

A quick update on good news:

A one-day conference on Cinemetrics took place yesterday (Saturday, March 1) at the University of Chicago. Look here for details.

An article by Kevin B. Lee that acknowledges Cinemetrics and used its method to analyse gendered time distribution in Oscar-nominated films came out today in the Sunday edition of The New York Times. Very interesting, look here

Good news from London.

To believe Wikipedia (see here), 80 years ago, on December 15, 1933, Barry Salt was born in Melbourne. If he were not, there would be no cinemetrics.

Not that Barry hit upon the idea of counting shots and measuring their lengths right away. It all began with Barry dancing for a ballet company (the picture below shows Barry can jump). He then became a theoretical physicist, and then a filmmaker who knew all about lighting. In the mid-1970s it became clear why Barry Salt needed to know so many trades, his future biographer might speculate. The art of ballet taught Barry the dancer to count while moving. Science taught him statistics, filmmaking, how films were cut. All this could not but turn Barry Salt into a founder of numerate film history.

    Many happy returns, dear Barry, from me and from the whole Cinemetrics community!

The question mark in the title of Baxter's essay signals that the latter questions some of research procedures used in the article "Attention and the evolution of Hollywood film" J.E.Cutting,, J.E.DeLong,  and C.E.Nothelfer (2010). To find Baxter's essay click on the bottom line under "Cinemetrics studies."

Good news from early March:

I added a new link to an old discussion topics called "Cinemetrics predecessors." The discussion was intiated by Frank Kessler (Utrecht U) in 2006 and taken up by Torey Liepa (Bilkent U) who discovered what turned out to be the second earliest known film statistics study conducted by Benjamin Barondess and published in the Moving Picture World in July 1913. Now that MPW became available online you can find Barondess' study here. Take a lool; this hundred-year old essay called "Studying Leaders" (leaders=intertitles) repays reading: what Barondess establishes is how the ratio between shots and intertitles changes within the duration of the film. Also, click here  for the earliest statistical study of shot lengths by Dr Elias Boudinot Stocktonin in August 1912.

Seen this? Peter Leonard (Director of Computing at the Humanities, University of Chicago) sent me the link this night. Trailers and montage sequences are so blatantly important for the study of editing, yet so epemeral and immaterial as film history facts that they are rarely looked at or discussed at all.

Good news and Happy New Year!

1) The discussion On Statistics continues in our Measurement Theory section. Responses came and are waiting for you to be read from Mike Baxter and Nick Redfern to "Question 2: What do Lines Tell?"

2) Prof. Lev Manovich, who has been in dialog with Cinemetrics about its data visualization from 2008, has published a new, very informative essay on editing, Vertov, Soviet montage and other things, complete with inventive visualizations, and announced it on our Discussion Board. Lev also suggests a possible solution for the automatic cut detection.
