Thanks to video-sharing websites and improved film technology, creatives who want to work with a camera can do so without chasing Hollywood contracts. Many stunning animations, short films, and documentaries have emerged from indie film studios.
The whole point of making videos and films is that people watch them. Getting your motion pictures in front of an audience can be a challenge though. Billions of video hours are uploaded to YouTube alone and the number of overall videos created is rising every minute. If you’re going to get your work out there, you’ll need a personal website.
At first, using free website templates might seem like a good idea. They’re easy to use, look pretty good and don’t cost a penny. At least, that’s their initial appeal. The truth is, free website templates are:
Your website should be a reflection of your film or animation style. It needs a great user experience so people stay on your site and keep watching. Most of all, it needs to be found in the first place.

Creative is an intangible. There aren’t many great creatives in radio. In branding there are less. In strategizing there are even less. Most companies have no BRAND. The products and services are amazing, the businesses are often brilliant. There is just nothing for consumers to grab and buckle themselves into. The web sites are also no influence in creating the brand, brand strategy, ad concept or ads.
