In: Proceedings of the 5th EAI International Conference: ArtsIT, Interactivity & Game Creation. Springer, pp. 29-38. ISBN 9783319558332

We brought together the subject of computing with creative technologies, cinematic arts (film), drama, dance, music and design in terms of research and education and propose here the development of a flagship computer software platform, SceneMaker, acting as a digital laboratory workbench for integrating and experimenting with the computer processing of new theories and methods in these multidisciplinary fields. We discuss the architecture of SceneMaker and relevant technologies for processing within its component modules. SceneMaker will enable the automated production of multimodal animated scenes from film and drama scripts or screenplays. SceneMaker will highlight affective or emotional content in digital storytelling with particular focus on character body posture, facial expressions, speech, non-speech audio, scene composition, timing, lighting, music and cinematography. Applications of SceneMaker include automated simulation of productions and education and training of actors, screenwriters and directors.
