Metadata Investigations for Time-based Art

The Meta Movies project aims to investigate and prototype the creation of useful metadata that will enhance scholarship, analysis, search, and retrieval of time-based art.  During this stage of the project I will focus on film objects, although it is certainly conceivable that this approach could be applied to other time-based media.  Metadata standards for film and video will be utilized, but this project will go beyond description at the item level.  For time-based arts, such as film and video, metadata will be significantly more useful and powerful when it is able to describe at a more granular level of detail.
