GK Films is an independent production company started by Oscar-winning producer Graham King. Over the last 30 years, King has produced or executive produced more than 45 films. Heralded by critics and film groups, his films have been nominated for 61 Academy Awards®, 38 Golden Globe Awards, and 52 British Academy Film Awards.
We were hired to design and develop the first version of the GK Films website, showcasing the movies and television shows produced by Graham King. The site included photos, trailers, posters, behind-the-scenes info and video, cast information and music for films such as The Departed, Hugo, The Town, Gangs of New York, and Rango.
We wanted to emulate the film medium as much as possible and fully utilize the gorgeous photography and videos from GK Films. The platform best suited for this approach, at that time, was Flash and XML. Ylva Wickberg was responsible for UX, visual design and all Flash development. The site was built in ActionScript 3.0 and completely dynamic (XML-based), allowing the client to handle all site maintenance. This website was produced in collaboration with Mile26Media.
