Agenda Item #2: How to map X on Y (and why)
Movies generally lack, as any other media does too, from classification issues. Categorizing media helps to build up feature groups or to browse it, for example. The problem of genre classification will jump right into your face if you spend some time drifting around in a video store wondering what makes this or that film to a action flick or to a drama.
Furthermore our motivation was to find an easy way of selecting a film you might like to see based on contextual parameters. Think of the situation of people asking the videostore guy for advice. Usually they are looking for a film which is having this or that.
In this case the parameters are limited to: Emotions or the question of "How do you want to be entertained?"
