CLIENT: Phil Shingler, Western Exposure
Western Exposure specialises in investigative, historical and educational documentary production both for broadcast and non-broadcast distribution. Subject areas are in general environmental, social and political, involving co-production partners with also an emphasis on involving trainees in the production process.
Producer Philip Shingler has established a special relationship with producers in New Zealand, having produced the first documentary co-production between Channel 4 Television, the New Zealand Film Commission and Television New Zealand, “A Nuclear Free Pacific” (1989) with Pacific Stories Partnership & Vanguard Films in Wellington.
To establish Phil’s first online presence primarily to provide documentation to film funding sources to aid in submitting outlines and work in progress. Secondary was to give brief examples of previous films and television documentary production. Phil also works with local communities in producing videos on local environmental issues, this needed to be illustrated on the website.
The simple design and layout was created at the same time as the new Western Exposure logo, along with business cards. Although the website is small with regard to content, it was felt that CMS was the best way to go, to allow updating without coding, allow for expansion, and other administrators to make changes when necessary.
Design, implementation with Joomla!, hosting and administering the website, SSL, security, maintainance and back ups.
