A closer look behind the scenes of film making and media science reveals that the costumes used in film productions are products of a complex construction process. The costume designer has to put a lot of creative and investigative effort into the creation of costumes to provide the right clothes for a particular role, which means the costume reflects the(More)
—Patterns are a well-known and often used concept in the domain of computer science. They document proven solutions to recurring problems in a specific context and in a generic way. So patterns are applicable in a multiplicity of specific use cases. However, since the concept of patterns aims at generalization and abstraction of solution knowledge, it is(More)

Film making is in many aspects a very complex business represented by highly non-trivial business processes in which multiple organizational units are involved. Whereas in regular manufacturing and paper factories like insurance companies there is an increasing adoption of information technology (IT) and especially business process management (BPM)(More)
—Patterns are a well-known and often used concept applied in various domains. They document proven solutions to recurring problems in a specific context and in a generic way. As a result, patterns are applicable in a multiplicity of specific use cases. However, since the concept of patterns aims at generalization and abstraction of solution knowledge, it is(More)
The process to identify, author, and apply patterns is mostly performed manually by pattern experts. When performing pattern research in large domains involving many persons, the current state of the art of pattern research techniques, such as shepherding and writers' workshops, should be extended to a larger organizational process coordinating the work of(More)
Costumes are prominent in transporting a character’s mood, a certain stereotype, or character trait in a film. The concept of patterns, applied to the domain of costumes in films, can help costume designers to improve their work by capturing knowledge and experience about proven solutions for recurring design problems. However, finding such Costume Patterns(More)
Investigating the emotional impact of historical music, e.g. music of the 19th century, is a complex challenge since the subjects that listened to this music and their emotions are forever gone. As a result, asking them for their experiences is not possible anymore and we need other means to gain insights into the expressive quality of music of this(More)
In media science, the concept of the costume language is only vaguely defined. We propose a formal definition of this concept, which is based on the concept of pattern languages. In order to derive the patterns of such a language we introduce a method that supports capturing knowledge about clothes, identifying costumes based on clothes and abstracting(More)
