About:

My name is Edmund Helmer, and I’m a data analyst at Facebook. As a fan of film as well as data, I saw that there was a wealth of quantitative information about the movie world, and far too few outlets that examined them – so I founded BoxOfficeQuant.com.

Through this site, I hope to report on the financial state of the industry and attempt to predict its future; but I’d also like to dive deeper into the creative aspects. I’d like show that statistics can be beautiful themselves, as well as a route to appreciate the art of film.
