Media filename generator

Hi, everyone.

Although I have tried to use descriptive filenames, and to stick to certain conventions, my media files have ballooned in number and are now out of control. There are now 1359 clips.

I want to be able to search for clips by filename. For example, to find all clips that show Peter, I should be able to search for "Peter". I therefore need to watch each of my 1359 files and categorise it according to some standards. I could categorise the clip by who is in it ("Peter", "Paul"), the location, whether it is slow motion, whether it has bad audio, etc. Currently I'm doing it manually and it's too painful for words. Is there some method (preferably free or cheap) by which I can watch a clip and select the relevant items from drop down boxes and have it spit out a filename for me?

I think Bridge would work for you.

Open the folder with the clips, select one, you can play it in a preview pane, and there is a Keyword panel where you can select keywords to tag the files.
