Bis Films is a Montreal film production company that uses corporate work to fund passion projects that promote local artist. Their original website was done using Flash, then converted to a more modern way of implementing animation, but the actual design was still outdated and needed major re-working.
I have worked with Sasha on several occasions and am always pleased with the results. She designs with heart and comprehensively understands her clients’ needs. She is creative in many different ways and is never at loss for a solution. I aim to work with her for years to come!

- visually impressive design to match the visual impact of films
- informative yet compact website that’s easy to scan through
- easy -to-update content
As the basis of the new website design for Bis Films we used existing artwork created for their original website. These artworks were striking and creatively incorporated aspects of filmmaking and the company’s logo. We used these illustrations as background images interspersed with solid, content-heavy blocks and added parallax scrolling to create depth.
We used accordions for progressive disclosure of information in the portfolio and services sections allows for the website to be quickly scannable yet informative. With the same idea in mind, the clients section offers testimonials on mouse hover.
We also created a simple way for Bis Films to keep their website’s content fresh without them having to devote any additional resources for content creation by using the company’s Twitter feed to showcase new work and production photos.
As far making this content easy-to-update, we created simple meta boxes that allow the Bis Films team to quickly add new and revise existing content.
The Bis Films team was able to start with their new website’s content after a 30 minute in-person tutorial session.
