A film portfolio built on WordPress.

Details

Kamau Buchanan, a filmmaker, needed a website on which he could display his film portfolio.  He didn't have complex requirements, so I chose WordPress as the CMS due to the simplicity of the admin back end and the ability to extend its content to accommodate videos in addition to blog posts.  WordPress has built-in support for categorizing posts, which made it a cinch to group the films by type.

Film production photos are hosted offsite on Flickr, and JavaScript is used to pull in the photos as a slideshow.
