I am very excited to get started making my website, but before doing so I wanted to make a plan of exactly what it will look like on PowerPoint.
When entering the website this is the first screen you will see. The title and tag line big at the front with a light blue background (#B2C4D5) as this is the main colour scheme throughout my film. The title and tagline is in the font ‘Kefa’ as I believe it matches my films aesthetic.
As you scroll down the actual short film is the first thing you see on the page. You can then scroll onto the next page, or alternatively you can select which page you want to look at with the tabs at the top, this makes the website simple to navigate. So, the second page has the synopsis of the film on a pink background (#EABDBD). I wrote a synopsis which doesn’t give too much away but will hopefully intrigue the reader to then want to watch the film, the synopsis will be improved when on the actual website. This page also includes the credits of the film.
I then want a page, with the same blue from before, to have reviews. Short films would usually get professional reviews from newspapers but I wouldn’t be able to do this, but also my target audience doesn’t read newspapers anyway. I will get members of my target audience to write short reviews to put into this page.
This page is a gallery, with the same pink, to include all the extra, behind the scenes, videos and photos.
And lastly, there is a contact page so that people who enjoyed the film can join a mailing list in order to get updates of my future work and about the film.
Creating this plan has allowed me to feel confident about creating my actual website. It is no longer just an idea in my head, I am glad that I was able to get all my ideas clearly into a power point.
