Not the only site I’ve been working on of late, but more news of that to follow.
It’s not always actors websites that I design. I have recently completed one for a friend who sells antiques as a hobby. They wanted to be able to showcase their collection and receive contact from anyone who was interested in purchasing said antiques. Using WordPress as a template, I helped set up this site on their own dedicated server space so that they could add, amend, update, delete antiques in their collection, in the appropriate categories despite having little experience with maintaining databases. Et voila. Simple but functional with, I hope you agree, a dash of elegance and sophistication to give a website that looks great and serves it purpose not just for the person running the site but for visitors too.
So remember, you don’t necessarily have to be an actor to use our service!Angela Bull when she approached me to redesign her theatre production company’s website. They have a new show coming out in early 2011 and so were keen to ensure that not only was the website up and presentable but also that logistics were in place for mailouts, feedback and updates. The new site not only boasts a great new original look and logo for the company which will be used through future media outputs, but also the ability to update the site for themselves from remote locations such as mobile phones and communal computers, and have those updates relate to their other online presences such as Facebook.
ActorCV has created a personalised design for David’s site, but he can change the design anytime from a choice of thousands of free templates that are available already online. Whilst this may seem to make ActorCV redundant, it couldn’t be more further from the truth. ActorCV remains in the background to administer the site on his behalf and can customize existing code to suit his site needs.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that whilst this new site takes form, other sites lie idle. Well, you’d be wrong. The new look Twilight Ballrooms website has recently been relaunched. The new look website has involved all my creative juices including not only great Flash design, but original orchestrated music, 3d graphics, animated page transitions, animated backgrounds, flickering lightbulbs…wow just everything. I hope you like it. Writing for a new short film for the site will begin in 2011. There are also four LIVE shows in Londons Piccadilly this November 2010 featuring real magic from magician Malcolm Marvelle – Master of Mystery and the lovely Rita. To book tickets and for more information visit www.thetwilightballrooms.co.uk . You can also follow the projects’ progress at my film making website Tranquility Base Presents, which is also sporting a brand new layout.
False Impressions is a website for magician Richard Leigh. He has been producing magic shows for the last 20 years. To this day he has several shows running at various locations in London and uses the site not only for promotion of these shows but also for links to ticket sales via TicketWeb. The website requires regular updates and maintenance which is done by ActorCV for a yearly fee. It also includes an archive section where Richard can store records of posters, programmes and other media from his past shows.
The site was able to utilise some of Richards original artwork into the design. ActorCV also designed the logo and filmed and edited the trailers that appear on the site.
