To create a movie database website for a regional language industry, I would like to know whats the best way to acquire/build a large collection of movie synopses for my site.
Currently I have thought of 2 ways:
- Hire a small team of writers who have extensive knowledge on our regional movies and also hopefully contacts with production houses. The drawback would be it will take quite some time to build a considerable list of movies and the data might not be accurate always.
- Create a community edition wiki portal that would allow masses to contribute, just as Wikipedia. But the drawback is I am not sure how much I can trust the community on the data submitted.
In order to manage this project successfully, I need to know the pros and cons of each approach to document on my Risk register. Which method is likely to be the most cost effective? Which one would be more accurate? How could I mitigate the risks and lower costs of each approach?
