OntoFilm: A Core Ontology for Film Production
In this paper we present OntoFilm, a core ontology for film production. OntoFilm provides a standardized model which conceptualizes the domain and workflows used at various stages of the film production process starting from pre-production and planning, shooting on set, right through to editing and post-production. The main contributions in this paper are: we discuss how OntoFilm models the semantics necessary to interpret these workflows consistently for all users (Directors, DoP’s, grips, post-production, lighting). We also discuss how our ontology forms a common bridge between the low level descriptive metadata generated for the video footage and the high level semantics used in software tools during the production process.

Abstract

In this paper we present OntoFilm, a core ontology for film production. OntoFilm provides a standardized model which conceptualizes the domain and workflows used at various stages of the film production process starting from pre-production and planning, shooting on set, right through to editing and post-production. The main contributions in this paper are: we discuss how OntoFilm models the semantics necessary to interpret these workflows consistently for all users (Directors, DoP’s, grips, post-production, lighting). We also discuss how our ontology forms a common bridge between the low level descriptive metadata generated for the video footage and the high level semantics used in software tools during the production process.
