Nutshell is a video editing tool that allows users to collect clips from their favorite TV shows and create “Supercuts” that summarize complex plot arcs and compile recurring inside jokes. Nutshell is designed as a browser plug in that integrates with streaming services like Netflix, giving users easy access to content for a Supercut. Once the user has edited their clips and sequenced them on a timeline, they can publish their Supercut and share it to social media platforms.

This project was produced within the Experimental Television Lab at the Georgia Institute of Technology and was advised by Janet Murray.
