A beautiful showcase of film and photography work

The Client

James Bayliss-Smith is an award-winning documentary cameraman and filmmaker based out of Bristol in the UK. He approached Pilcrow + Pixel needing a site that would beautifully showcase his portfolio of film work, display a number of photo galleries, and offer potential clients details of his skills, experience and kit.

Thanks for making such a great site for me – really pleased! It’s got everything I need to have on there and I love the design.

The Project

We built James an online home featuring a bold, modern design that puts his films front and centre from the moment visitors land on the homepage. A looped moving background taken from one of James’s films is followed by a mini-portfolio grid of video embeds offering a taster of his full selection of work, with photos displayed directly from his Instagram account lining the bottom of the page.

As is standard with all Pilcrow + Pixel projects, James’s site is built throughout with a highly bespoke WordPress interface utilising custom fields and inline instructions via Advanced Custom Fields, which means he can quickly and easily update with new content – whether that’s adding a film to his portfolio, photos to his galleries, or modifying his skills, experience and film credits. The site also features a blog for James to regularly add posts about his work.

Service and Support

We support and maintain James‘s site, including occasional content updates, via our Website Care Plan. It’s also hosted on Pilcrow + Pixel’s servers.
