The application of Business Process Management (BPM) technology can provide significant benefits to an organisation in terms of e.g. cost savings and responsiveness to changes. In this paper the application of this technology in the context of film production is investigated. A prototype named YAWL4Film was developed on top of a state-of-the-art BPM system. YAWL4Film supports collection and entering of production-related data and automatic generation of reports required during film production. This system was deployed in two pilot projects at the Australian Film Television and Radio School.
