ImpactSpace: Coming in late 2014


What patterns and insights can be drawn from the rich universe of information surrounding social issue media? HI’s ImpactSpace web application is an interactive platform for exploring the social impact of films through a multidimensional analysis toolkit. Most impact measurement and evaluation focuses on one film at a time, and in isolation. ImpactSpace considers context, and clusters multiple films around a given social issue to create new standards for systemic analysis. The app will ground impact data in social science theory, giving filmmakers, funders, researchers, and advocates a scalable tool for understanding the complex media landscape. – KSH
