Abstract

In this paper we present a novel ontology-based model for the representation of the dramatic features of narrative media (video, text, audio, etc.), focused on the notions of the character’s motivated actions. We describe the theoretical background, composed of narratological theories and rational agent theories, that support the proposed ontological formalization. We sketch the ontology and an encoding example.
