To overstate the obvious, there’s a new look here at SRF.
As I prepare for the premiere of my new film, Quick Feet, Soft Hands, I have been doing some re-tooling of the Lovell Films website. Since I was already spending hours digging around in web design apps it seemed like a logical time to revamp this site as well. SRF has looked the same for nearly two and a half years, which is ages in cyber-time. I, for one, am happy to see a change.
As for the content, nothing’s changed. Self-Reliant Film is the same ol’ website you know and love.
The only difference of any significance is that I’ve tried to create more of a bridge between this site and the Lovell Films site, which promotes my own film work. There was a kind of design schizophrenia going on between the two sites — they didn’t look like they represented the same person, and the links between the two were virtually hidden. The links certainly not hidden in real life — the blogger and the filmmaker are one and the same — so I’ve tried to address that a little with the nav bar at the top.
So, that’s the main difference. If you’re compelled to explore the Lovell Films site, go for it. And if not, I hope you continue to enjoy what you find here.
Ok, enough about the re-design.
Coming soon: The remainder of my long-delayed reviews of Apple Color training tutorials.
ADDENDUM: Oh yeah, one more change: You may notice that the banner of the site has been shortened from “self-reliant filmmaking” to “self-reliant film.” That’s what I call this blog, that’s what most other people call this blog, and that’s the URL of the blog. So it was time to have the banner actually use the proper name.
