For Temple’s 2017 Data Analytics Challenge NBC Universal presented a large dataset on movies and asked the question “Can you predict which movies will be a hit or a bust?” After going through and organizing the data I choose to focus on animated films for my infographic as it was one of the highest grossing film genres. For the imagery of my infographic I looked to old film and black-and-white rubber hose animation, the likes of which Steamboat Willlie and Betty Boop are derived. I decided to focus on the qualities that make a great animated film versus a bad one (in terms of box office revenue) and discuss what could be beneficial for future movie creators to consider.
