Yes, /film has been done quite well overall. I completely agree,
Gordon & Kirrily.
An additional Enumerated property could work for now, I think. hmmm.
And we could move those films that have the Black & White Genre to
that new enumerated property.
Later, the enumerated property could be discussed for fully converting
into a formal strategy for /film_format, once we work out the
technical details to abstract and capture what is needed.
(Like the research I have gathered for evolving HD and 3D formats in
cinematography in general & vendors such as Sony. So that could be
useful later this year or even next, if we do decide to formalize &
Ok, I'm +1 for just an enumerated property for now, so that I have a
placeholder for the data I currently have in Refine, which entails
"color", "b&w", and "colorized".
(it's getting to the point now, that I'm needing to pre-plan my
pre-plan for Refine uploads ! (and data scraping strategies)... lol,
but it's all for the "love of the game")
I'm good for a few months away for /film anyway at the current moment,
since I'm still working on finalizing Ports, Foundries, & Lighthouse
data. But it would be nice to have the property there when the time
comes for my upload. So whatever can help with that would be great.
