I plan to build on the momentum created by the blog post by posting similar cognitive readings of films here on my own blog. In the meantime, I can point you to my existing publications on the topic:
For information on the Dynamic Images and Eye Movement project (DIEM) and its analysis of the influence of visual and cinematic features on how we watch movies as presented in my analysis of There Will Be Blood, check out:
Mital, P.K., Smith, T. J., Hill, R. and Henderson, J. M. (in press) Clustering of gaze during dynamic scene viewing is predicted by motion. Cognitive Computation
On how we perceive film and the issues related to continuity, read: Smith, T.J. (2010) Film (Cinema) Perception. In E.B. Goldstein (ed.)The Sage Encyclopedia of Perception.
On the illusion of the "invisible edit" and how it relates to natural attentional shifts when watching film, see: Smith, T.J. and Henderson, J.M. (2008). Edit Blindness: The relationship between attention and global change blindness in dynamic scenes. Journal of Eye Movement Research, 2(2):6, 1-17.
Finally, if you want to see more of the DIEM eye movement videos, new videos as they are created and download the analysis software (i.e. CARPE) go to the DIEM project page and subscribe to our Vimeo channel. As a taster, here is a showreel from the DIEM videos. Enjoy!
