Begin the citation with the name of the person primarily responsible for the content (e.g. screenwriter, director) along with a descriptive title such as dir. for director. If you have other individuals you would like to highlight (e.g. performers), include those after the title of the album as you would the editor for a book; add a descriptive label (e.g. perf. for performer) after the person's name to clarify their role in the overall production (see p. 39, "Books, Monographs: Examples," 1). Use [Motion picture] or another appropriate descriptive label to indicate that you are not citing a traditional text-based source. Consider including an access date for online content, particularly if the content might be removed or changed (see p. 39, "Reports and Handbooks," 2). If your accessed the film from a library database, provide the name of the database in place of the URL (see p. 40, "U.S. Government Documents: Example," 1).
