Tim Burton: Character Network Analysis
MetadataShow full item record
Social network theory can contribute to the understanding of the structural properties of a movie and the data contained within it. The meaning or importance of the individual characters and the community in a movie is conditional on their position in a complex scheme of social relationships reported by the data. Based on the idea that we can extrapolate key properties of a movie by collecting, compiling and analyzing its associated data character network analysis and comparison of two Tim Burton movies: this project entailed Corpse Bride and Big Fish. Based on the criteria of who spoke with whom, who appears with whom and the overall number of appearances throughout the films, I collected and compiled the data with the hopes of discovering trends within the network relationships that generate enthusiasm among Tim Burton’s fan base.
