Changing Video Arrangement for Constructing Alternative Stories
Currently, automatic generation of filmic variants faces a number of key technical issues and thus it usually resorts to the shooting of multiple versions of alternative scenes. However, recent advancements in video analysis has made this objective feasible, though semantic consistency must be somehow preserved. This paper presents a Video-Based Storytelling (VBS) system that successfully integrates video processing with narrative generation by means of a shared semantic description. The novel filmic variants are constructed through a flexible video recombination process that takes advantage of the polysemy of baseline video segments.
