In this paper, we present Loculus: a metadata wrapper schema for the management, distribution and reuse of digital Motion Picture. This schema provides a mechanism by which information from different stages of the life-cycle of an artifact can be encapsulated together. It is light weight, versatile and reduces information redundancy. We approached the development of this schema from the use prospective and in the context of the broader project; for which we had already developed an Information Model, Data Model and System Architecture. This schema can function as a converter between different Information Systems and people, as well as allowing for better management of information within an organisation. The Loculus schema has been applied to a case study from our collaborations partner, the Australian Film Television Radio School (AFTRS).
