Context

As young directors of independant movies, Michael Mackenzie and Tony Dupcinov sign one of their first major movies with Wasteland. The synopsis mixes drugs, scams and chaotic situations and is set in Melbourne, a cosmopolitan city of South Autralia. In order to give more visibility to the movie during an independant film festivals, it was essential for them to show the trailer of their movie online through a dedicated website.

Realization

To address this challenge, a website with three different teasers in high and low definitions has been created. The web design reflects the offbeat spirit and corrosive nature of the film. In terms of technology, the player jwplayer  was chosen for its popularity and its integrated sharing system for social networks. An add this module was also added for those who prefer a more traditional method of sharing. The synopsis, credits and a contact form are available in a footer that unwraps up the whole page. For the curious, the film is now available online.
