Considering the explosion of video sources, efficient techniques for interactively organizing a meaningful structure to allow easy navigating and semantic-based indexing are appealing. We explore the use of sketch based annotations for video clips to enable novel approaches to interacting with video by following hyperlinks specified by users. In this paper, we provide a sketch based interface- Sketchboard, to facilitate the interaction process of navigating and organizing video clips more naturally and efficiently. The Sketchboard includes two key processes: (1) Providing a video annotator using the sketches, which enrich and enhance video indexing for navigation. (2) Supporting video organization using sketch based interface based on sketching annotations, which enables fast, flexible and personalized video organization. The informal user study showed that the presented interface enhances the accessibility and the individualization of exploring videos.
