What ya think of www.newagefilm.co.uk ?

Post by Lawriejaffa » Mon Sep 03, 2007 4:45 pm

Here is my website gents - its the er corporate website as opposed to the creative one im still working on but opinions appreciated. It's based on a flash template that i customised (which to be honest is no easy task so don't do it lightly!! unless you've got a wee bit o' experience with flash!)

I think it looks fantastic! It's a very minimalistic approach and I wish I had that talent with Flash. The only minor problem I have is that it takes a bloody long time to load (and I've got 10MBPS broadband). Other than that, congrats!

Yep I tried it on the uni line which is very fast and it took ages to load! You have to fix this somehow as it is not professionally very good. Other than that it looks neat

Pretty slick.

Kind of looks like a Flash Template, to me. All of the page could use more content.

And yes, it takes too long to load. Usually, when you return to a flash site for the second time, it doesn't have to load at all (saved in the cache or something).

Yes but caching meets cr** all to a first time viewer who normally has something like a 5-10 second interest span

Very very VERY cool!

But yeah, maybe have an alternate HTML version to choose from for people in a rush. Generally having Flash only on your website is a bad idea

I think it loads pretty quickly, and since the visitor can see the progress bar they should be reassured by this.

Just timed it at 17 second loading time with my 4mbps connection

Most if not all sites load up within a second usually

Agreed. Just shy of 60 seconds on my DSL. Although the wait is long, it's nice how there's no waiting afterwards when going through pages - it's all loaded at the beginning. :)

I'm not too down with Flash but if you can make it load as you go along, that'd help!
