Towards a cinematically enhanced narrative
This paper describes the automatic creation of simple cinematic scenes and events that use film language (FL) as the basis for the creation of a visual story, aiming to improve its narrative. Taking a simple screenplay as our input, we generate relevant cinematic events and conditions using a film grammar. Our system, using a Knowledge-Base (KB) approach, generates the cinematic view of the story, providing 3D animation clips that correspond to the screenplay. A prototype under development is described, together with its applications and current status. Categories and Subject Descriptors I.2.4 [Artificial Intelligence]: Knowledge Representation Formalisms and Methods, I.2.1 [Artificial Intelligence]: Applications and Expert Systems, I.3.8 [Computer Graphics]: Applications, J.5 [Computer Applications]: Fine Arts. General Terms Theory, Experimentation, Design, Human Factors. Keywords Cinematic language, narrative, knowledge base, storytelling.
