Launch Automator through OF

I’m looking to run some Automator workflows in the background of my OF sketch. I have some (ofxUI) buttons controlling video recording and want the videos to run through Automator once recording is finished. Ideally, I’d like to have a submit button I can press that will launch the Automator workflow (which could be saved as an application) without exiting the fullscreen OF app. Any leads on how to implement that would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jeff
