Creanalytics: a portmanteau of creative and analytic.

This idea came up when writing about the computational video essay, largely in response to creative and analytic research methods coexisting under a unified computational framework in the age of generative AI. This could be understood as generation through prediction, similar to the analytic-synthetic distinction which I found in this piece about analytic augmentation in prompt engineering.

Update: this is now an article! Forthcoming in a special Issue on critical technical practice in the journal Convergence: The International Journal of Research into New Media Technologies

Also related to a project in collaboration with my wonderful colleagues Jonathan Gray and Mercedes Bunz on using video editing techniques as data analysis. We commissioned Sam Lavigne to work on his Videogrep tool! More on this soon!
