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