Epoch Motion Pictures

We worked hand in hand with members of Epoch Motion Pictures to develop and fully interactive, HTML5 mordern website. The site utilizes ajax to power a robust image browser as well as dynamically load in content on command. Our developers managed to utilize a robust background player which capitalized upon Vimeo and YouTube's powerful file server to host our larger video files. This saved valuable server space and worked to create minimal load times and very smooth end user experience. We also created the branding for the production company as well as a dynamic and fast moving super open with stunning visual effects. Please follow the link below to watch the video.
