Analyzing gender in the movie Halloween with machine learning

For a Halloween-themed experiment, we used machine learning to help analyze the scene settings and content in the 1978 movie “Halloween.” We used TensorFlow img2txt to generate descriptions for each frame and then ran python scripts to pull frames based on word descriptions. Using the specific content we could get specific percentages and frame amounts for quantitative data surrounding female stereotypes.
