An Artist's ePortfolio...


With some professions, it's impossible to convey your skills & abilites on your resume alone.  That's where an ePortfolio helps to fill the gap.  Almost everyone has access to the internet, if not on-the-go, then either at work or at home.  Creating an ePortfolio and giving yourself web presence is a great way to showcase your talents. 

A good friend of mine recently graduated from film school and needed an easily accessable, simple & straight-forward website to show his visual form of artwork.  I worked with him over the course of several months (as we were both very busy at the time) and created exactly what he wanted to showcase.  It's sleek, very simple, and lacks fancy ornamentation. 

This focuses the visitor on his film reels, instead of flashy artwork, advertisements, or other distractions. In the screen shot below, the surfer dude on the front page is actually a QuickTime plug-in, which plays his "Film Reel", a showcase of sorts.  Visit the siteHis Resume & Contact Info are also easily accessable.  I created two other pages, one focused on his artwork and another for his short films.  While he initially posts these short films on YouTube, this ePortfolio pulls & showcases the content directly on his website.

The website also features a graphic link to his IMDB.com profile, and a RSS Feed link of the website's content.  Content on ePortfolios is usually added at sporadic intervals, with a week, or even month passing between updates.  The RSS feature drives site traffic in a "Demand-Pull" fashion, alerting fans & followers in real-time when new content is added. For more information on RSS Feeds, check out this article.

All-in-all, this is a great implementation of a WordPress website, and it's a great example of how to use a website to compliment or even supplant your resume!
