Hello there my voiceover friends. I'm back on this board after what seems like forever! Those of you who know me IRL will know that I recently upped sticks and moved from Oxford in England to the big, loud, scary, crazy New York, NY.

I'm FINALLY feeling settled here, and have been setting out to refresh my brand a little. I have some grand plans for new demos later this year, but for now, I've updated to a nice, new website. I'd really love your opinions on the new site. What works? What doesn't work? In particular, what do people think of the landing page? Is it obvious that there's a video that can play in the background?

The site address is www.willmwatt.com.

Thanks so much!

Will

I'd say ditch the landing page and just make your /demos page the home page. Demos, Contact, and About are clear and streamlined, but the landing page doesn't really add anything but confusion imho.

a agree with julia. probably not what you want to hear because the video is cool and a labor of love. still, as a person looking for a voice i need:

1. hear your demos
2. contact you easily
3. there is no 3.

I kind of disagree. The landing page is pretty cool with the video blurred in the background but it was an extra click to get to your demo page. If you could somehow put your demo player of choice on the landing page in prime placement and also a link to the video then I think it would work.
If that is not possible then I agree with the previous comments.
Todd is correct with:
1. hear your demos
2. contact you easily
But number 3 is up for grabs. We are all suckers for slick and shiny things and a really slick landing page does give the client the impression that you mean business. And as we know, first impressions do count.

Thanks, chaps! I wondered about that myself. I thiiiink I can get the same kinda feel of the landing page, but have the demos underneath. I'll give it a go and report back!
