DREAMS of the DEAD is a short documentary about grief, memory and place. It tells the story of a journey through grief and its transformation. The website had to feature not just the trailer of the film, but filmmakers Marlene Rodgers and Franco Pante also wanted the website to inspire the audience to share their own journey and memories of people and places.
We choose WordPress to build the custom design and the story upload feature for the website. The design incorporates elements from the film in the form of floating objects and artifacts throughout the site. The ‘Memory Project’ section of the website lets users upload their own story and pictures to the portal, which are then reviewed by the admin and shared on the website. These shared stories can be browsed and/or searched easily from any device. The website also features and blog and a mobile friendly design.
