Movie Genome mapping is nothing new. Netflix and itunes use it to recommend movies to its users based on movies you’ve viewed or rated in the past. This app is a bit different because it’s much simpler. The thing I love about the Discovr Movies application is it’s simplicity and graphical user interface. In the image above I used the app to map movies similar to “Amelie” and “A Woman is a Woman”.

My project ‘Legalize Me’ is a finalist in BVEW’s National Film Pitch Competition so our chances are 1 of 4 (there was a tie so accepted an additional entry). Mike and I are polishing the script and budget for submittal by April. I’m excited about the momentum a win could do for this project. They announce the winner in May so I’m going to try and forget about it till then. Fingers and toes crossed. Stay tuned and please vote.
