I finally got around to watching the movie 'Stranger than Fiction.' If you haven’t seen it yet, go watch it, it is a great movie and it does some very interesting visual things as well.

The primary idea is that the main character, who may or may not have OCD (obsessive, compulsive disorder), is shown as always counting and calculating things in his head. The neat thing is that this information is displayed visually for the audience. It not only gives us insight into the character, but very cleverly displays information.

If you watch the 'extra stuff' as you know I do, there is a great section on the GUI, which is based on the graphic user interface concept. The real gem is the group MK12 that winds up doing the work: wonderful stuff, amazing work.

Check out their short 'movie' embryo and you will understand why I am very enthused by their work in the movie and the implications for the visual and digital journalist. More on this idea tomorrow.

I watched "Embryo", and I don't understand. Can you explain further?
