Abstract

The Deep Film Access Project (DFAP) aims to unlock latent opportunities that exist within the big and complex data sets generated by industrial digital film production. The project is developing a methodology for the integration of the data and metadata generated through film production, by capturing, archiving and making accessible the diverse range and levels of expertise which exist within filmmaking. As a proof-of-principle, the project uses the entire corpus of Sally Potter’s 2012 film, Ginger & Rosa, providing an emblematic example of an industrial digital feature film production in contemporary Britain which features the work of a number of renowned and prolific practitioners in the UK and international film industry. Our initial focus is on a case-study of materials associated with a single scene from the film.
