Bilateral Contracts with Industry

Visual Analytics for Cinematographic Data

Participant : Marc Christie [contact] .

The contract has two objectives: first developping a film annotation tool that integrates cinematographic image and editing features such as visual composition, shot type, balance, depth, shot transition, etc. While existing annotation tools such as Anvil and Elan are are largely used for film annotation, the specificities of cinematographic and editing features requires the design of dedicated tools which mix automated and manual annotation stages. The work builds on the Insight annotation tool developed in our group (see [29] ).

The second objective is to provide means to visualize and interact with the data, following the general trend of Visual Analytics. Different representations are currently explored and developped inside Technicolor's internal tools.
