In the present paper we explore ontologies, as a means to capture knowledge of the film-making domain. More specifically, we intend to open a discussion so as to guide the development of DirectorNotation, an under-development open-source tool for representing media content, as of its pre-production and production phases, using a symbolic notation system, in which a film director can formally record his intentions. DirectorNotation's authors suggest ontologies for formalizing and reasoning over their notation system. The current paper discusses this technical choice, considering its limitations, and makes suggestions about the work that needs to be performed if these limitations are to be overcome.
