Don't jump!

Daniel Radosh

With a bit of programming he calls Cinema Redux, Brendan Dawes has compressed eight classic films into single images, with each second represented as an 8x6 pixel.

"The end result is a kind of unique fingerprint for that film," he says. "A sort of movie DNA showing the colour hues as well as the rhythm of the editing process."

The Vertigo image above (full size) really does give an accurate impression of the film, doesn't it?
