“Short Film Festival” – Websites with Video Backgrounds

The history of movies started in 1880s when the first movie camera was invented. In those years movies were exhibited as a carnival novelty and extremely important tool for communication and entertainment…so they remained due date. Only there is one 'BUT'...back in those days movies were some sort of a privilege and today everyone may have a movie uploaded onto smartphone, and even not a single one.

Movies found their way in our daily life we watch sitcoms while cooking, eating or doing anything else. And quite recently movies found their way into website design, not quite movies but some short video clips that play on when you load this or that page. These clips cover the whole background from to side of your screen. An .mp4 optimized video with continuous playback creates an outstanding effect and captures the attention of visitors for a long time, in case there is something worth watching.

This design technique captures minds and souls of users and designers becoming one of the most popular trends of 2013. Todays blog post reminds some sort of a Short Film Festival. Grab your popcorn, take a comfy seat and have a pleasant viewing.

Please note: the screenshots may not reflect the effect produced by the video itself, you're welcome to click through the examples.

    Not quite as elegant as some of the examples above… but I created this back in 2009 using Adobe After Effects, Adobe Flash, & Adobe Dreamweaver… basically a slew of stacked layers with the video in the middle (the background image of the video is scaled & matched to the background image of the webpage, then all the graphic & text links are placed over the video layer). All kinds of fun!

    But again, not quite as elegant as your examples. (The site is also downsized as Safety is the only section still active, so don’t lambast me with comments about broken links: We specialized in oil, gas, & pipeline safety training videos, but after the Deep Water Horizon incident, our clients went into survival mode & we haven’t produced a single client project in the last 18 months.)
