Absolute Post

The company I work for (VCommunications) recently developed a new website for the post-production company Absolute Post. As a company that deals in a lot of TV media, they wanted to show off the work they do. So, we worked with a brand agency who created the design and we were tasked with implimenting the design and features they wanted.


The site showcases all the TV and music video work they use (using a mix of Fancybox for the lightbox and JWPlayer for the video player), and we’ve also tweaked the site to work specifically on the iPad too.

We used Yii as the framework and created a CMS to allow management of the homepage (adding new photos, picking links), news section and content management for the About & Contact pages.

The site relies heavily on the external asset management platform called Chillibean, which hosts the videos used on the site and most of the imagery. The site also uses the GeoIP plugin to determine a vistors location (if you’re in any of the American continents, you see the New York homepage; any where else you see the London homepage). It also uses the weather plugin for the Contact page (though heavily customised).

Any questions are welcome!
