We describe a study conducted to investigate the potential correlations between human subject responses to emotional stimuli in movies, and observed biometric responses. The experimental set-up and procedure are described, including details of the range of sensors used to detect and record observed physiological data (such as heart-rate, galvanic skin response, body temperature and movement). Finally, applications and future analysis of the results of the study are discussed.
