The influence of personal characteristics on the perception of television images. Andrea Andreini, director (Italy, 2006), St. Petersburg State University

It was decided to identify in our study what are the specific features of the viewer which correlate with his ability to recognize the nature of the image offered to him. For this purpose, we used three short films produced by the author over the years, which are characterized by very different image content from extremely stereotypical and negative, reminiscent of pathology and the denial of life, to the highly positive and affirming the value of life and the constant development.

The aim of this work was to identify the correspondence between the technique used for mounting the film (memetic or ontic) and emotional response or feelings of the viewers. Therefore the purpose of this study was to identify individual and group differences in the perception of the film; to identify with the help of correlation analysis, which features of the viewers are related with their ability to recognize the nature of the image offered to them.
