I'm pleased to reveal three new sections that previously did not exist. Maybe this is in response to my decision to not house all the videos I've worked on this site, but only a few, and showcase other types of work. I'm not entirely sure where the decision came from because these sections should have existed when I first made my official site. Nonetheless, they exist now.
First up is the Artwork Section. This is a place for me to showcase all the artwork I've done in my life. As of writing this news post the section mainly contains artwork I did in my college years... or mainly 2010 when I took a bunch of art classes. However, even some art I did in elementary school or middle school is worth showing, and so I'll add that in the future. Once I find it and scan it.
Next up is my Poetry Section. Another hobby like photography to stem from my trade. I've enjoyed poetry since I was in high school, and am saddened that of late I haven't kept it up much. That will change however now that I've got this section.
And lastly there is my Creative Writing Section. This is something that should have been up since I made the first version of the site. Alas, it didn't cross my mind. Looking through the short stories I put up I realize that I should keep at it because it's a great tool for getting the creative juices flowing. Even if it doesn't amount to something worth sharing, it still can lead to me being able to get a flow going to write a screenplay or a different creative writing piece. Again, you can look forward to more of this in the future.
That covers the new sections of the site. I hope that you like the redesign. It's the best yet. And I hope you like the new sections and the work that I'm delivering. Please if you want more, help support an artist and donate using the PayPal li...

I wanted to redesign Tim Butt 2's website for over a year before proceeding with execution. In that time I learned a lot about web design concepts and ideas that I had no previous knowledge of. This included PHP & MySQL databases, CSS3, HTML5, and more. Although I had some base knowledge on some of these subjects I explored and experimented with them long before implementing them on this site.
One Forest Films was a huge testing ground for a lot of this, just as it had before I built the original Tim Butt 2 site. I'm proud with what I accomplished there for the Members and Profiles using PHP & MySQL, going even more complex in my design and coding than anything before. It made the redesign of this site easer.
Before I started redesigning, I brought some of those concepts over. Such as the News section, since I did so well with it on One Forest Films. I always wanted my site to have a more prominent News arena. A place for me to write and escape the confines of Blogger. I also wanted a place to freely write and self-publish. This is that place.
I hope that you enjoy the new design. I know I do. And please feel free to visit One Forest Films and become a member. There's no better place for a member of the film community to feel at home.
