Ethan Shaftel is a creative whirlwind in general and a successful film editor in specific. We built the first version of his editing portfolio a few years ago and he was ready to update his look and the site structure.
We went against the trend of darker sites for video (his old site was already based around black as well) and created a fresh, white and clean site for him. The site is extremely light weight, making great use of the Six Caps and Muli fonts via Google Webfonts.
His videos are still presented over black, thanks to a nice implementation of Shadowbox and Quicktime. Ethan can quickly and easily add videos to his site due to the simple semantic coding of the site.
