A New Movie

This application uses mouse movements to create a new edit of Bruce Conner’s “A Movie”(1958). "A New Movie" maps each x/y position of the users screen and assigns each position of the screen to an edit point of "A Movie". The application watches and records the users mouse movement over a chosen period of time. When enough data has been collected the application will re-edit the original version of ”A Movie”. The user can then view the re-edited version, which keeps the original soundtrack in place but rearranges the visual track according to the users daily mouse movements.
