Dialogue balloons
« on: May 29, 2022, 06:42:53 AM »
So, you probably did the right things during the ascension holidays.
I did not. Sent my family to friends and stayed home to enjoy the spare time by my own. That’s fine if you have a meaningful project to finish … if not … well, you will have to set up something silly.
What about drawing funny dialogues?
What could I think of?
-          Monty Python – wonderfully silly
-          From the area of epic movies, what about Pulp Fiction?
-          What else? Shakespeare, Moliere? … well …
-          …
It’s not completely trivial to find dialogues on the internet. It takes a while.
I found Monty Python’s Holy Grail on GitHub (https://github.com/brouberol/Generate-Monty-Pyhon-Dialog/blob/master/data/data.txt).
Kaggle helped with Pulp Fiction (https://www.kaggle.com/datasets/matiaswargelin/pulp-fiction-script-dialogue).
 
Anyhow. I played a little bit.
Colors, positionings, control points.
Thought about splitting the dialogs into sections, depending on the opponents involved.
Maybe some images in the actor shapes?
Some speech-balloon lines to the actors.
The possibilities are endless if you think about it.
How will it continue? It will not. The probability that someone with a real need for such a solution is too low. A cartoon artist, a theater director, etc.. And even then, there will very probably already be a proprietary software solution available.

Stuff involed?
  • The internet for the dialogues
  • An Excel file as dialogue
  • The Visio file, including the masters for the speech shapes and the actors
  • A Jupyter Notebook for processing the excel file and building the drawing.

A nice one indeed. Will try to find a proper data set.

I do wonder how many people from outside the UK understand the nuances of The Four Yorkshiremen sketch, e.g. why Yorkshire, the social background, the accent, the other speech mannerisms ..

I guess not everybody (even in UK) understands all nuances.

There are much more people that speaks (and understands) English as a 2nd language than vice versa.

But aside of manierism, accent etc it's very funny. Even if you don't understand completely the text is available in the web.

Once I heard that Germans were so successful in engineering because they can determine a specific issue more precisely than e.g. English. There could be a drop of truth in it. Every language has its advantages. Same with programming languages.

If you take a look at a sketch of "One Heart and One Soul" you have the same situation. Unfortunately there are no subtitles.

What about this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1U97nGbTaU

But a nice idea anyway. rainy weekends have their own advantages ;)

People are the same in all countries. I regularly have similar conversations with my wife (in Russian).  ;D

WOW! In Russian, in the phrase "I like beer," the words can go in any order (6 options).

from itertools import permutations
t = 'я пью пиво'
[print(' '.join(i)) for i in list(permutations(t.split()))]

я пью пиво
я пиво пью
пью я пиво
пью пиво я
пиво я пью
пиво пью я

I've been told that latin is the most precise language.
