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 globalization. To stay competitive, they're turning to contemporary technology-enabled business improvement methods, such as business process management. Despite its potential benefits, the use of workflow systems for automating film production processes is largely unexplored. The authors' case study highlights some of the key challenges that lie ahead for Web-scale workflows for film production.
