…So we put some media in your media, so you can watch while you watch… Oh the internet, how I love thee. You may notice that the “Reel” section has now changed to “Media.” I figured that the new “Media” page would be a better home for all my multimedia content in general, instead of having a single page devoted to my cinematography reel and additional pages for any other multimedia that would be added later. You may also notice that instead of embedded content, I’ve (lemme lemme) upgraded to Lightview (and Lightview Plus) for a sleeker and more Web 2.0 approach to media viewing. Overall, I think it fits the design for the site very well with the semi-transparent darkened overlay and rounded edges of the viewer.
I’m also in the process of adding more videos to external sites to try and achieve the highest quality video playback with the quickest load times. I’ve started to lean more towards using Vimeo YouTube for hosting my video content, because they also have the option for uploading and playback of HD content, which will definitely come in handy for me in the future. Overall, I think the “Media” section will be a great change/addition to the site as my career in filmmaking and multimedia creation progresses.
