Pervasive computing allows immediate image and sound capturing, interaction with content, participation in content productions, and thus virtually anyone can become a multimedia content producer on the spot. With our research focus on collaborative content production, we designed a platform called "Poligatari" which aims at bringing professional content producers and amateur filmmakers together. After a brief introduction of the background and related work, we will discuss the development of the core features that distinguish our system from other collaborative content production platforms. By altering the traditional video production workflow, we have created an environment that supports the active participation of amateur video producers not only in the capturing and furnishing of footage, but also in the actual storyboarding process. Extremely low hurdles for user involvement make the "Poligatari" concept a unique collaborative crowdsourcing platform for multimedia content creation.
