We present methods for film visualization and browsing based on algorithms from computer vision, information visualization and on a hierarchical model for content semantics. We introduce OM-Images for the visualization of temporal changes in a moving image sequence. Together with interactive browsing technique the visualization methods can be used for the exploration of a film and video at different levels of abstraction. The proposed levels of abstraction are the physical, image, object or discourse level. Visualization methods are used to generate 1) static descriptions, which printed on paper yield a film book and 2) interactive documents, e.g. web pages or special video browsers. Finally, we give examples of a film book of a feature length film.
