This past month I've had the opportunity to work with a long time colleague and friend Carla Sinclair on her current project Heal Myself. Carla is part owner of Empty Cup Media which is a photo and video company serving the Toronto area.
Recently Carla has decided to add a new documentary to her list about Kate Reid. She has put together some funds for initiating and started the marketing plan to pull this documentary together. Carla contacted me a month or so ago to build her a site that she could use to keep people in the loop. We discussed the needs and sorted the best avenue for what she needed. We came to the conclusion that she would roll the design and I would build the platform. Carla has many talents besides her filming ability and she rolled out a nice design to match what we needed. I made a few small tweaks and then took it from there.
I did not want to bog her down with crazy back end menu options and other stuff she would not need so I used my favorite system, Drupal. This allowed me to build the site quickly and efficiently and style the back end for her to manage without having all the admin clutter. In a matter of 2 weeks we had a site rolled out and Carla was pluging the content in.
The site is simple and effective and showcases what this documentary is about and what they are doing.
I had a lot of fun on this project as I normally do when working with Carla and look forward to anything she has coming down the pipeline.
If there is one thing I've learned, its when Carla rolls out an idea there is nothing stopping her from pulling it off and I mean nothing :)
