Lana Lights International Projections Festival
Luce Dipinta organises many events using projected images, their major event is Lana Lights, an International Painting with Light Festival spread over a number of days. With invited projection artists and free entrance to the public. Events range from video 3D mapping onto buildings in the town, multivision indoor screenings, workshops and light installations.
The association needed a website which was stand alone for the Lana Lights festival and related events, rather than being part of their own association website. It was to include a members area for contributing artists, news, video, calendar of events, and sponsors area. It needed to appeal to possible sponsors and partners in order to raise finance and technical support.
Joomla! was used as the CMS (Content Management System), with the artist and sponsors areas had permission levels set for restricted access. Language translation plugin Falang was used to implement the secondary languages of German and English, whilst the primary language was of course Italian. Video was achieved by using a plugin to connect to Vimeo and YouTube, this meant better SEO and saved server space and band-width.
