Many of the challenges that today are faced during the development of interactive storytelling systems have been treated before by filmmakers. Over the years, cinema has evolved and established various principles and rules to be adopted during the creation of a film. However, unlike movies, where every scene is carefully planned, interactive storytelling does not have this freedom. The dramatization of stories, whose sequence of events is unknown, depends on a robust dramatization system, which adapts itself appropriately to any type of scene. This project explores the use autonomous agents inspired on cinematography to dramatize interactive narratives.
- We propose a dramatization architecture composed by a set of autonomous agents inspired on cinematography.
- We present cinematography director that selects in real time the best camera shots for the dramatization scenes in storytelling environments.
- We propose two autonomous agents (director of photography and a music director) to create and manipulate the audio and visual aspects of the dramatization of a story to express emotions.
