Film production is an information- and knowledge-intensive industrial process which is undergoing dramatic changes in response to evolving digital technology. The Deep Film Access Project (DFAP) has been researching the potential role of semantic technology in lm pro- duction, focussing on how a semantic infrastructure could contribute to the integration of the data and metadata generated during the lm pro- duction lifecycle. This paper reports on the preliminary development of a knowledge framework to support the automatic management of fea- ture lm digital assets, based on a workow analysis supported by an OWL ontology. We discuss the challenges of building on previous work and present examples of ontological modelling of key lm production concepts in a semantically rich hybrid ontological framework.
