Today is my last day at one of the film internships I've been doing in New York. While this is a sad in some ways as it's been a great way to get involved in the documentary scene in NYC, it also has it's positives. A major one is that I now have two days a week to devote to seeking the sponsorship and funding that I need to hit the road. This should have been an ongoing thing, but I let it slip quite badly when I moved to NYC, getting completely swamped by new jobs and lifestyle in the Big Apple.Thinking about how best to promote myself and the expedition, I've also started pondering how well this website is working. So I'm going to ask you all two things to help me out.
The first is - do you like the website? And within that same question, what works for you and what doesn't? What do you enjoy about it and what would you like to see more of? Be brutally honest, I can take it! Plus it'll help me out a lot.
The second thing is that I'm starting to feel that I've reached my limit in terms of website building skills. In fact, I reached that a long time ago even with this relatively simple site, and now I'm a little lost as to where to go next. Unfortunately I don't have the time to learn more, but I do feel my website could benefit from being better aesthetically and intuitively. So my question is - are there any web designer out there who want to help me out? This could be just a re-design of the site before handing it over to me again, or even someone who fancies taking on the upkeep of it while I'm on the road. A kind of website manager, if you will. Alternatively, maybe you know a company who specializes in this sort of thing, and you think they might be interested in sponsoring me with some help and design knowledge. I'd love to hear about them.
Feel free to post comments or responses to either question on this blog post, or email me them at firstname.lastname@example.org (that's my new email address for the project, but I'll continue to use the old one as well so don't worry if you've still got it.)
Thanks, I'll look forward to hearing what you have to say!
