- each box of the graphic novel exists as a separate document, with multilayered access and several descriptors (tags and keywords). Users can determine the clickable areas in each layer because each area will also have its own metadata;
- each file (video, photo, audio, etc.) on the documentary platform is stored individually. The video is stored as shots (unedited) or sequences; the audio as specific files (musical phrase, atmosphere, sound effects, etc.); the text in specific fields; and photographs with their specific metadata.
In this way, each document (bubble in the graphic novel, video shot, sound bite) forms an asset.
The advantage of storing the assets separately and not the plates (in the case of the graphic novel) or the films (documentaries) is that it allows users to access each element with complete freedom and precision (layers, metadata) and, most importantly, to combine the various assets in an automated way while ensuring a smooth continuity (of the storyline, subject matter, interactivity).
In order for a specific group of people to have access to this project, it will be necessary to provide access to the assets, which will be stored on a server, via Internet, and protected by a login name and password.
Once the assets are ready to be used, they can be made public through a Beam (see below).
