Money Spinners

We sat and played with the data for a good while analysing it and grouping it every which way. What struck out at us was that different genres earn very different amounts of money. We were also very interested to notice that the most profitable genres weren't rated all that highly by critics and even the audiences. Nor did these genres win many awards.

We then went a bit deeper by comparing the most award winning genre (drama) with the comedy genre, which won only one major Oscar over the 5 year period. We discovered that the plots used in the comedy genre are rather formulaic.

We wanted to present the above in as clean a way as possible. In order to accomplish this we used lots of white space and kept the axes and minimalist as possible. It was also important that the final result look pretty!

We hope you will enjoy Money Spinners!
