Emotional identity of movies
In the field of multimedia analysis, attempts that lead to an emotional characterization of content have been proposed. In this work we aim at defining the emotional identity of a feature movie by positioning it into an emotional space, as if it was a piece of art. The multimedia content is mapped into a trajectory whose coordinates are connected to filming and cinematographic techniques used by directors to convey emotions. The trajectory evolution over time provides a strong characterization of the movie, by locating different movies into different regions of the emotional space. The ability of this tool in characterizing content has been tested by retrieving emotionally similar movies from a large database, using IMDb genre classification for the evaluation of results.
