Programming Logic for Movie Collection

You want to produce a report of your movie collection. Which fields would you use, and which would be the data types of each of those fields? Create a flowchart and pseudo-code for generating a report that prints all of the movies, with all movies made by the same director on one page, as well as the number of movies by each
