Abstract

Cinematography affects how the audience perceives a movie. A same story plot can be interpreted differently through the presentation of different camera movements, which show the importance of cinematography in filmmaking Typically, filmmaking is costly, and beginners and amateurs rarely have the opportunity to play and do an experiment on a film set. In this work, we aim to design and construct a virtual environment for film shooting, allowing a user to play multiple roles in a virtual film set and emulating the process of the filmmaking Our system provides camera shooting assistants, tools for field directing and real-time editing, aiming to help novices learn cinematographic concepts, track the progress of filmmaking, and create a personalized movie. In order to verify that our system is a user-friendly and effective tool for experiencing filmmaking, we have conducted an experiment to observe the behaviors and obtain feedback from participants with various cinematographic backgrounds.
