Movie bar codes  MAR 24 2011

Not quite sure how these are done -- it looks like each vertical slice is representative of the colors in a given frame from the film -- but these moviebarcodes provide a good sense of a movie's tone and color. This one is...any guesses?

2001 Moviebarcode

It's 2001: A Space Odyssey. An unexpectedly colorful film. BTW, prints are available. Oh and see also Brendan Dawes' Cinema Redux.

Update: Here's how you can make your own (w/ downloadable source code). (thx, @seoulfully)
