What do the Avengers talk about. An interesting use case for Data science and creative writing. As analytic tools become more prevalent, it is important that our understanding of their uses grows with it.
Another interesting job post at Netflix: Planning Specialist, Partner Outreach – Post Partnerships & Integration. The focus for the Partner Outreach team is to proactively engage the creative community by educating creatives on technical requirements and best practices,driving new industry standards… …while continuing to foster industry-wide change. Although I think they miss the mark a little […]
I gave CGP Grey’s newest video a thumbs down. It was the first time I’ve disliked a video of his. The Fable of the Dragon-Tyrant is a weak allegory about death and dying. And what is most frustrating about it, is how Grey, usually rational and realistic, presents three completely illogical points.
I finally got around to reading the Computational Video Editing for Dialogue-Driven Scenes paper from Stanford.

I know that I’ve slammed Netflix multiple times for things like compromising their core feature (the binge watch) for Baz Luhrmann. And this job seems like a fascinating step in the right direction: Netflix has released over 600 Originals and plans to spend […]
Interesting but misguided post over on the Celtx blog about Horror movies. Celtx breaks down the screenplays of famous horror movies like It Follows and Scream using their Scripts Insights tool.
