Intelligent Multimodal
Visualisation of ScreenPlays

My PhD project investigates Natural Language Processing methods with regard to extracting theme and mood from film/play scripts. The main aim is to visualise the detected emotions in animations. A software prototype, SceneMaker, will augment short 3D scenes with emotional expressions of body language and set. A scene will be composed of affective virtual actors and multimedia like music, sound, illumination, timing and camera work to support the mood and theme. A mobile, web based user interface will be created for directors or animators to allow fine-tuning of the automatically created animations.
