Abstract

The film industry is currently witnessing a severe shortage of good stories and a decline in storytelling art. Meanwhile, creative computing has been employed successfully in the humanities, especially in the fields of art. Seeing the similarities between the process of film-story creation and that of creative computing, we propose a theoretical framework across the two domains, where the exploratory, the combinational and the transformational rules are jointly utilized to generate new ideas and provide potential options in filmstory creation. The framework consists of a film knowledge library, a creative computing system, an evaluation model and an output module. The combination of creative computing and film story creation not only helps to produce novel storylines, shorten the creation cycle, and speed up film industry, but also contributes to the novelty and specificity of interdisciplinary studies.
