Movies, Fractals, and the Mind: New Academic Article Out

There’s a new academic article out in the journal Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, and RN’s own Director of Data Science and Product Innovation (Jordan DeLong, Ph.D.) is an author!

This article recaps a lot of work conducted in the lab of Prof. James Cutting at Cornell University. It addresses a number of ways to measure the physical structure/composition of a film, how those characteristics have changed/evolved over time, and how one particular manner in which films have changed might be a clue to understanding why movies are so good a capturing our attention. Hint: it has to do with fractals!

The new article can be read (for free) here.

It Can't All Be Work!

We work hard here at Research Narrative, but it’s important to take time to appreciate the awesome things in life. One of these things is watching RN Senior Research Analyst Jordan McLoughlin doing his thing in Hanoi.

Anyone Want an MBA?

RN had a great time in Las Vegas (you can read about it here), and during the insanity Kerry took time to be on a panel put on by her MBA program – the UCLA Anderson School of Business. The panel was accurately titled “Successful Leadership: UCLA Anderson Alumni from Media, Tech, and Entrepreneurship Share Their Insights and Experiences”, and was moderated by Jay Tucker, the super cool Executive Director of the equally cool Center for Management of Enterprise in Media, Entertainment and Sports (MEMES).

Thanks to UCLA Anderson for the panel, copious mini-sliders, and the chance to connect some UCLA alumni with interested students.
