Previously on this blog we've seen a pretty cool visualization of the history of colour in movie posters. Today we bring you another awesome visualization, but this time from a different angle.

Spotmaps is an on-going project to map the colour narratives of various films. Based on Brendan Dawes' Cinema Redux, each frame's colour is sampled and a spot of average colour is produced from the combination of one second's frames. The visualizations span from films dating back to 1923 through present day and they already have quite the collection to explore.
Here were some of our colourful favorites from the database.
It's interesting that even with just small blocks of color, you can still get a sense of what parts of the film you're looking at. You can check out the rest of the narrative maps, and see if they have any of your favorites, on the Spotmaps website.
