Straight out of the Art Institute of Dallas comes digital filmmaker, Trish McCallister.
Trish hired us to design and build a responsive website that would effectively present her body of work as a filmmaker to a wide audience. It was important that the experience be responsive from desktop to tablet and mobile devices. She also needed the ability to update the content of her website easily without having to do a lot of HTML coding. She required a minimal look and feel so that the user would not be distracted from her portfolio pieces. The website would also be reviewed by the Art Institute as part of her final assignment upon graduating.
We ended up designing a very simple, stylish website. Since content was going to be minimal our main goal was to put her film work up front and center with little distractions from anything else. On the other hand, we didn't want the website to be too stark so after collaborating with Trish throughout the creative process colorful background images were created to add some character to the overall presentation. Videos are loaded and displayed via a modal when the user clicks on a thumnbail, darkening the background to provided extra focus on the video content being streamed from Vimeo.Finally, the website was designed with a responsive layout so that the content could be reached from most mobile devices and implemented into Wordpress allowing Trish to maintain the majority of the website content.
Give me a call or shoot me an email. I would love to discuss your project and its requirements.
