Abstract: Affective understanding of film plays an important role in sophisticated movie analysis, ranking and indexing. However, due to the seemingly inscrutable nature of emotions and the broad affective gap from low-level features, this problem is seldom addressed. In this paper, we develop a systematic approach grounded upon psychology and cinematography to address several important issues in affective understanding. An appropriate set of affective categories are identified and steps for their classification developed. A number of effective audiovisual cues are formulated to help bridge the affective gap. In particular, a holistic method of extracting affective information from the multifaceted audio stream has been introduced. Besides classifying every scene in Hollywood domain movies probabilistically into the affective categories, some exciting applications are demonstrated. The experimental results validate the proposed approach and the efficacy of the audiovisual cues. © 2006 IEEE.
