OLAC Movie & Video Credit Annotation Experiment

The OLAC Movie & Video Credit Annotation Experiment (http://olac-annotator.org) is part of a larger project to make it easier to find film and video in libraries and archives. In the current phase, we're trying to break existing MARC movie records down to pull out all the cast and crew information so that it may be re-ordered and manipulated. We also want to make explicit connections between cast and crew names and their roles or functions in the movie production.
