The screen business encompasses all creative and management aspects related to film, television, and new media content, from concept to production and distribution. Companies in this industry face increasing competition due to market globalisation. To stay competitive, they are turning to contemporary technology-enabled business improvement methods, such as business process management. Processes in the screen business, particularly film production, generally consist of highly interdependent steps that manipulate heterogeneous data and involve a variety of stakeholders in a distributed and mobile work environment. Despite its potential benefits, the use of workflow systems for automating film production processes is largely unexplored. This paper presents a case study that highlights some of the key challenges that lie ahead on the road to Web-scale workflows for film production.
