About Nanocrowd.

Understanding Why is crucial

We're a team of scientists, technologists, and developers who love movies and TV. We set out to understand WHY people like things because we believe that understanding WHY is crucial.

Audience Analysis Tools

Movies and TV shows evoke a variety of feelings and complex emotions. Ratings and rental histories don't capture these complexities. By understanding WHY, we were able to develop a powerful suite of audience analysis tools. Find out moreĀ about what we do and how we do it.
