Many attempts have been made to reduce burden and difficulty of CG (Computer Graphics) movie production. One of the biggest evolutions is an automatic control approach driven by commands or language, instead of traditional direct manipulation. In this paper, we propose methods and tools for automatic and directorial camera control, which are invoked by a text script. This approach is based on the knowledge base of cinematographic rules, which are provided by the movie analysis. This algorithm is being implemented in the DMP (Digital Movie Producer) system that aims at visualizing script written in simple natural language.
