Flim.ai: movie frame search

After I wrote about same.energy, a visual search engine in the last issue of DT, I came across another similar project this week: Flim is a search engine for famous movie frames, which uses a computer vision model to tag screenshots with the objects featured in them. A search for “clock”, for example, yields screen caps from Slumdog Millionaire, V for Vendetta, and Peter Pan. I can imagine this’ll become a very useful tool for cinematographers or film students who are exploring the different creative ways in which certain subjects have been portrayed in the past.
