Predicate Proposal - Directed by (Film)

I propose to change the name of the predicate from “Directed by (Film)” to “Directed by”. The director applies not only to a movie, but also to a TV series, cartoon, video game. It seems to me that these are similar activities in creativity, so the director should be applied to these Creative work too.

@technopoint2020 That is a good point. This field was originally just “Directed by” and a few months ago we added “(Film)” because it was otherwise confusing and used incorrectly for members of Board of Directors.

What do you think about “Directed by (Creative Work)” with an updated description:

Current: “Person who directed a film” → Updated: “Person who directed a film, TV series, video game, or other creative work.

@leeds (or others) may have some additional opinions.

Directed by (Creative Work) ” - Sounds good to me. I agree. Because film, TV series, video game - entity - creative work.

I think this predicate is used in other schemas
director on wikidata.org
director on schema.org

Could we take a description from there?
