As anyone who regularly reads my blog knows, I’m passionate about film data. The numbers behind our industry tell us a great deal about who we are, what we make and what audiences are watching.
So today I’m really proud to be launching a fun, free online tool which visualises film data through the years: FilmTimeMachine.com.
See it in action
The FilmTimeMachine contains some data my blog readers will be familiar with and also as-yet-unpublished data. Datasets include…
- Gender of the films crews on the top 2,000 films in the USA 1994-2013
- Gender of the films crews on all UK films 2009-13
- Most hired directors 2004-13
- Age of UK cinema audiences 2003-13
- MPAA ratings 1994-2013
- Genre of top films 1994-2013
- Adaptations and script sources 1994-2013
Most hired directors
Amongst the new data sources I created for the FilmTimeMachine is ‘Most Hired Directors’ for all films which grossed at least one dollar in the US box office between 2004 and 2013 (4,202 films in total).

I’m keen to hear what other types of film data people want to see represented with this tool so drop me a line.
