A Notation Based Approach To Film Pre-vis

A Notation Based Approach To Film Pre-vis
A Notation Based Approach To Film Pre-vis
This paper describes ANSWER which is a new approach to the creative process of film production. It is based on a symbolic notation system called Director Notation (DN) through which film directors are free to express their creative intent much like a music composer uses musical notation. The notation populates a semantic model which is machine processable and this input is automatically converted into a lightweight 3D pre-vis. ANSWER is integrated with DFT BONES Dailies, so that in post-production editors can quickly synchronise and compare pre-vised and actual footage. In this paper we will describe the various software tools which have been developed as part of the ANSWER project to achieve this goal.

Abstract

This paper describes ANSWER which is a new approach to the creative process of film production. It is based on a symbolic notation system called Director Notation (DN) through which film directors are free to express their creative intent much like a music composer uses musical notation. The notation populates a semantic model which is machine processable and this input is automatically converted into a lightweight 3D pre-vis. ANSWER is integrated with DFT BONES Dailies, so that in post-production editors can quickly synchronise and compare pre-vised and actual footage. In this paper we will describe the various software tools which have been developed as part of the ANSWER project to achieve this goal.
