Abstract

In this paper, we propose a novel method for performing high-level narrative structure extraction of films. Our objective is to utilize the knowledge of film production for analyzing and extracting the structure of films. This is achieved by combining visual and aural cues on the basis of cinematic principles. An aesthetic model is developed to integrate visual and aural cues (aesthetic fields) to evaluate the aesthetic intensity curve which is associated with the film's narrative structure. Finally, we conduct experiments on different genres of films. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach.
