MEN SHOUTING: A History in 7 Episodes, video essay published 2023, Winner of the Videographic Criticism category of the British Association of Film, Television and Screen Studies (BAFTSS) Practice Research Awards 2024 (https://www.baftss.org/winners-practice-awards-24.html). The judges write: "An incredibly well-crafted and presented video essay that successfully employs parametric techniques to explore three American films that all engage with depicting the 2008 financial crisis. O’Leary's research utilizes computational methods to highlight the recurring patterns within media genres. By employing collaborative programming techniques to extract and repurpose semantic and syntactic elements from films, the study underscores the repetitive nature of genres. Specifically, 'Men Shouting' emphasis the reflection of contemporary cultural anxieties embedded in the construction of these cycles. Through various elements such as performance choices, costuming, hair styles, and settings, the generic tendencies become evident. This work not only introduces innovative ways to examine genre forms but also underscores the significance of parametric approaches in media studies. Its outstandingly creative approach aims to make political and epistemic impact on the audience, and it insightfully opens the thinking form of a video essay."
