  • In this paper we describe a proposal for researching the annotation behavior of experts in the audiovisual domain, more specifically in relation to cinema. It gives particular focus to tagging behavior, but explores also other film annotation practices used by scholars in their own research, as well as standards and behavior adopted by indexing experts. The main research problem that this thesis addressesis developing an understanding of the role of social annotations forfilm content in relation to those other indexing and annotation perspectives, in order to look into how film archives can support different user communities and facilitate both experts and novices' annotation interaction with film heritage. Experts include "indexing" experts, such as archivists or cataloguers, and "domain" experts, in this case film specialists. The proposal describes the research question, the theoretical framework, the main background research, the methodology and method, as well as the data collection techniques. Finally, the current status and the expected outcomes are discussed
