Slated Analytics started by collecting data for over 12,000 released films...
The dataset includes financial elements (production and marketing budget), creative elements (genre and MPAA ratings), marketing elements (release date and theater count), and dozens of other data points, including team composition and script quality.
The analysis team is led by a data scientist with a Ph.D. in statistics whose experience includes years of “Moneyball”-style player performance prediction models for one of the premiere teams in Major League Baseball. He and the rest of the team analyzed the data to determine the variables that most closely correlate to movies’ financial performance.
Once the team determined which variables affect a project’s potential financial performance, they built algorithms that forecast the performance of projects at the development stage. As Slated Analytics' financial model ingests current market data on a quarterly basis, your projections and Financial Score may fluctuate over time.
