This paper aims at providing a quantitative description of shot types commonly used in movie productions. Only qualitative descriptions are available in the literature and even these are subject to various naming conventions. A vocabulary is fixed and human body-based rules are defined to extract the shot types. A database was generated with a set of samples labeled by cinematography experts. The proposed approach was tested on the set of samples providing promising results.

Shot Scale Analysis in Movies by Convolutional Neural Networks

This work proposes to use Convolutional Neural Networks for the automatic classification of shot scale into Close-, Medium-, or Long-shots, widely superior to state-of-the-art, with an overall accuracy around 94%.

HistShot: A Shot Type Dataset based on Historical Documentation during WWII

A historical shot type dataset (HistShot) is presented, where the frames have been extracted from original historical documentary films, and a center frame of each shot has been chosen for the dataset and is annotated according to the following shot types.

Shot type characterization in 2D and 3D video content

A variety of possible shot type characterizations that can be assigned in a single video frame or still image are studied and ways to propagate these characterizations to a video segment or to an entire shot are discussed.

Comparative Study of Movie Shot Classification Based on Semantic Segmentation

The performance of shot type classification was improved by preprocessing the semantic segmentation of the frame extracted from the movie by comparing and evaluating performance using ResNet-50 and Yolact as pretreatments forshot type classification.
