Indeed, feedback provided by movie producers indicates just how important they found these insights throughout each stage of the production. Their comments highlight that no matter which stage Largo.AI insights were requested, the producers were able to get a much better feel for how audiences would likely interpret the project, thereby allowing them a better perspective on the project.

Their feedback also indicated that while producers are less likely to enact big changes during the production and post-production phases when compared to the script phase, they would likely find themselves making lots more small-scale alterations. Once again, AI-assisted moviemaking is extremely helpful here.

Under this tab, you will see several categories relating to various aspects of your production. These tabs represent the main categories of tools offered by, i.e. character analysis, genre recipe, age suitability, etc.

We will cover how to interpret results in the next article as this must be covered in-depth.

However, users will notice that the results often take the form of breakdowns that include the relevant proportions of certain analyzed criteria. So, for example, the genre recipe readout includes extrapolated patterns relating to the proportion of each genre represented throughout the film.

Here is an example below. If you wish to learn how to read these results accurately read the next article in this series.

The relative proportions, and indeed the genres that have been identified, allow Largo.AI users to see how audiences will identify the overall genre recipe of their project.

So, for example, in the case of the most suitable actors to play the Joker character, it provided the following insights for the top three actors:

Joaquin Phoenix – 90.5%

Marc Menchaca – 92.4%
