Music Video Section Gets Redesign

Updated on July 25, 2014, 1:36 PM - Written by Tim Buttner


I'm pleased to announce that with the release of two new music videos that I recently had the pleasure of shooting comes a redesign of my Music Video Section in my Filmography Section. Earlier in the year I had secretly released a redesign to my Filmography Section that brought a dynamic new look and functionality. I used CSS3 to create an overlay effect for when a visitor to the page hovered over the poster image of the film/video project to display the project title, year, and brief summary.

Each individual section retains the same design as the main Filmography Section. Project pages got a new design based on the type of project it is, although Short Films used a similar design to what originally on my website's first design. The Vignettes of Vermont page design is the same. The Commercials/PSA/Corporate project pages recieved a dynamic new layout that features the videos and provides information.

So now with the release of these two new music videos I wanted to approach a similar concept. I wanted to not only provide information about who was involved with the creation of the music video (plus some technical information) but also a whole profile on the musician/band complete with links to discover more about the musician/band. I decided to separate the information through contrasting colors; with the production and technical information on a white background in black text, and the musician/band profile information on a black background in white text. I feel the new design looks fantastic.

So visit the Music Video Section and check out the new design and the new videos. I'd highly suggest checking out the music video for Troy Ramey's "Rosary" as it is hauntingly beautiful.
