Seadog Productions website launch
Hot on the heels of the Monty Halls brand website, we’ve recently launched a sleek new website for Seadog Productions, a film production company founded by TV broadcaster and explorer Monty Halls himself.
After recent investment, Seadog has expanded into a full production facility (based locally, in sunny Dartmouth), working on concepts and programme treatments for major TV networks, specialising in documentary, commercial, adventure and marine filmmaking.
Seadog required an impactful and professional website design that could provide an online focal point for information as well as a platform to exhibit their commissioned work, past and present. We approached the website design as both a portfolio and an effective sales tool, with two primary markets (broadcast and commercial), focusing on quality production, storytelling and imagery – not just flashy sizzle-reels (although we have those too!).
Lacking usage rights to some past projects, the challenge of the web design lay in leveraging photography and balancing the relationship of image and type, combined with strong messaging to target broadcasting commissioners and commercial brand managers.
The website has already picked up acclaim, featuring on The Best Designs, a curation website “of the best of web design and their designers, featured for design excellence”.
The build is fully responsive, delivering a high-quality user experience when viewing on screens from desktops to mobile devices, featuring smooth transitions and retina imagery throughout. A custom back-end CMS was developed and designed to suit Seadog’s requirements as their portfolio grows, allowing them to amend current content, keep us up-to-date with their latest adventures with blog posts and upload brand new content.
