Community Detection of Screenplay Characters

Abstract : In this paper, we present a model for automatic community detection of the characters by parsing movie screenplays. In our procedure it is proposed a classification model to predict the casting by categorize each line of the script in a character or not and the co-occurrence of the characters in the same scene constitutes the link between two characters in the social network. We use an existing modularity based community detection algorithm for cutting the created graph in communities. The innovation of our methodology is contained in the extraction of the casting of the screenplay from Wikipedia pages in order to train and build an efficient classifier to identify the characters in a screenplay. The proposed methodology for extracting automatically the social network and communities of screenplay characters can be probably used for enhancing movie recommendations.
