Direction is an important factor affecting the impression and quality of video contents. Therefore, the director must carefully decide the direction scheme. Especially unless the character’s emotions are directed effectively, viewers cannot empathize. Therefore, the director must carefully design the direction based on the theme and intention. Among them, lighting and composition are important factors directly affecting visual appearance. Therefore, careful design of lighting and composition is necessary. However, the direction depends on the experience and sense of the director. In other words, it is difficult to reuse the direction method and to preliminarily confirm the effect of the direction. Therefore, in this research, we focused on anger even in the character’s emotions. Furthermore, support to design of the composition and lighting for directing angry characters. In this research, we investigated and analyzed human anger. There are various causes and behaviors involved in anger. The impression to angry characters of viewer is varies depending on the causes of anger. Therefore, we classified each shots that angry character appears. This classification is based on the cause of anger. Furthermore, we analyzed lighting and composition of each shot. Based on these analysis results, we developed data library. In addition, we developed a template that can reproduce the lighting and composition of the analyzed shot with 3DCG. With this template, users can apply the lighting and composition of analyzed shots to arbitrary character models. It is possible to more effectively design the directing for angry character by using the proposed system.
