This site was created to be the web presence of California-based production company Brookwell McNamara Entertainment, and to highlight their catalog of films and television shows.
The design was provided to me by my client, and it was my job to develop a WordPress theme to conform to it. Some of the most notable parts of this project were:
- A system based on custom post types and metaboxes to allow for easy creation of new film/television projects
- A password-protected section of the site for in-development projects
- Using AJAX to load additional projects
Making the “project” custom post types easy to update was my primary focus. I achieved this by using a metabox-based system to limit possible “wrong” input, and make “right” input logical and simple. Categories were also used to sort projects as film, TV, or “in development,” which dictated where they appeared on the site. Whenever possible, systems were designed to be both functional and semantic. Nearly all text that appears on the site can be customized through the backend by the client: Almost no content is hard-coded into the theme.
