I’ve hunted high and low for just the right platform, but haven’t found the thing that I’m imagining must exist somewhere …. or ought to.
I’m producing a documentary about a significant 1950s subdivision in Canada. I’m looking for a great way to gather material from current and former residents – their photos, videos, ephemera. I’d like to end up with a browsable archive that can carry on in perpetuity.
I’d like something easy for the community member to use, desktop or mobile, without a direct invite, but possibly requiring login. Because there’s an intent to repurpose and republish, I’d like to have a step with a rights release that can be given an online signature. That’s an unlikely desire, but in case it exists….
Extra description data seems essential: what’s in this picture? When was it taken? By who? Who gets credit for it? Etc.
If the answer, in the end, is that there’s no elegant platform for this, and I should just use Dropbox or Google Drive, and do it all by hand, okay. But I figured I’d ask you folks first out of respect for the craft of data hoarding. Thanks.
Edit: yes, I see the mistake in the title. Booooooo me.
