Using scripts for affective content retrieval
Movie affective content analysis attracts increasing research efforts since affective content not only affect users attentions but also locate movie highlights. However, affective content retrieval is still a challenging task due to the limitation of affective features in movies. Scripts provide direct access to the movie content and represent affective aspects of the movie. In this paper, we utilize scripts as an important clue to retrieve video affective content. The proposed approach includes two main steps. Firstly, affective script partitions are extracted by detecting emotional words. Secondly, affective partitions are validated by using visual and auditory features. The results are encouraging and compared with the manually labelled ground truth. © 2010 Springer-Verlag.
