This thesis focuses on the design and implementation of Recast, which is an interactive media system that enables users to dynamically aggregate, curate, reconstruct, and distribute visual stories of real-world events, based on various perspectives. Visual media have long been the means for consumptive information acquisition. However, the advancement of technology in the field of communication networks and consumer devices has made visual media a powerful tool for user expression. Given the background, Recast aims to present an intuitive platform for proactive citizens to create visual storyboards that represent the view of the world from their perspective. In order to fulfill the needs, Recast proposes a media analysis platform, as well as a block-based user interface for semi-automating the workflow of video production. As a result of an operation test and a user study, it was verified that Recast is successful in achieving its initial goals.
