Narrative Annotation and Editing of Video

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNISA,volume 6432)

Abstract

Narratives are widespread in multimedia, especially in linear audiovisuals. However, rare are the approaches that deal with video annotation and editing with respect to the narrative content. In this paper, we introduce an annotation schema for the narrative features of media objects, that relies on a formal theory of story and characters, and we describe a software tool, called Cinematic, for the annotation of video objects and the automatic editing of the annotated objects.

Keywords
