Zulu (MS Excel)

These 2 images have been made using Microsoft Excel, from an analysis of the edited clips which make up the 1964 film. They use the technology and computing power of the spreadsheet in an attempt to objectively represent the essence of the film.

The first image illustrates the length of each shot. As the pulse of the film quickens, so the vertical lines become more densely packed. The second image illustrates the main protagonist in each clip of the film.
