In this project, we studied how changes in the visual activity of movies affect the experienced duration of the observers. We asked participants to reproduce the durations of brief visual tracks from Hollywood movies (2-4s; no cuts). Besides the original track, we also tested pixelated versions of the tracks that either maintained or maximized the visual activity of the corresponding original track. In general, we observed increasing experienced durations with increasing visual activity. Also, the original tracks were experienced as longer than the matched pixelated tracks indicating that the amount of processed information is positively related to experienced duration.
