Now Playing: Revamping the website, one page at a time!
Well, I will say, that much like it normally is, much of the news related to Village of the Giants has been relatively quiet. However, one item did come to light in the last month.
Village of the Giants leaves Amazon Prime Video
It was one of the reasons I got Prime, and now, it's gone. If it will surface again on Netflix or another streaming service (or even come out on Blu-Ray) we'll just have to wait and see. But sadly, for now, we are without a widescreen presence of the film out there.
Revamping the Fanpage
After considering it for well over a year, I finally got down to the nitty-gritty, and started revamping the layout, links, pages, and much more!
The rebuild for now, is going to be a work-in-progress, while still keeping the website up. However, I have made some changes that should make it a bit less confusing:
- Once you click 'Enter Site' on the main 'index' page, all of the major links are now held on the 'information' page.
- I am working to remove some information that doesn't have as much bearing on information related to VOTG, such as a lot of over-explanations in the 'Locations' section, about Blondie Street and Courthouse Square.
- I am still using a primitive form of HTML for now. I feel that if I get a firmer grasp on HTML5, I may just go for another revamp, and format the page with the newer style of coding.
- HTML5 coding has been instrumental in reviving the MP3 files of Mike Clifford's songs in the 'Music' page, and I hope to find additional types of coding that can allow the radio ads and movie trailer under the Publicity section, to come to life once again!
It's a slow-and-steady job, but I'm liking the change (and I'm toning down that garish yellow, with a light-tan background more reminiscent of the film's poster). Take a look around. I must say, I'm very happy with the layout for the 'Film Locations,' 'Vehicles,' and the information page on "The Food of the Gods."
